Lynn Austin is an American author known for writing the Refiner’s Fire series and the Chronicle of the Kings series.

Austin always wanted to write, but frequent traveling and her growing family delayed the start of her career. Her husband’s work took her to Colombia where she would work as a teacher, but then his work took them back to America and then to Canada. It was the long Canadian winters that made her make progress on her writing goals as there is not much else to do. She was able to resign from teaching in to write full-time and has never looked back since. She has won eight Christy Awards for excellence in Christian Fiction in her career.
