Regal Crest Authors - Lynnette Beers

Lynnette has been telling stories ever since she was a child, but it was not until adulthood that she realized she wanted to pursue a career in writing and literature. After earning degrees in English and film studies, she went on to get an MA in literature and an MFA in fiction writing. She has been a professor of creative writing and British literature for several years.

This novel was her MFA thesis and is the product of extensive research and time spent in England. Three study abroad trips gave her the opportunity to live as a Londoner and to get an ear for British dialect and nuances. As a longstanding member of the International Virginia Woolf Society, she has presented papers at conferences in the US and the UK. Her stories and essays have appeared in a number of publications.

When not writing or grading papers, Lynnette enjoys mountain biking, hiking, and ocean swimming. She does much of her revising and editing while sitting in a shady park or on the beach. She's married and lives in a small coastal town in Southern California.

Just Beyond the Shining River

After she gave up a promising career as an artist and turned her back on her British roots, Gemma Oldfield settled into life in Los Angeles to be with the woman who'd captured her heart. When things don't go as planned, Gemma buries herself in her work as a Hollywood set decorator-all the while clinging to the hope that the passion with her lover can be rekindled. But she must temporarily leave L.A. behind and return to England after her grandmother's unexpected passing.

Once there, she discovers shocking secrets she could never have foreseen. When she finds hundreds of letters written from a mysterious person dating as far back as the 1930s, Gemma embarks upon a quest to understand why her grandmother took so many secrets to her grave.

In her pursuit to learn more about her grandmother's past, Gemma meets an intriguing woman who has the potential to change the course of her life forever. But can Gemma open her heart to love again? Will she stay in England for a new beginning or return to the States to the life she knew before?
