Thanks for stopping by! I'm Bryn, jack of all trades, master of none, and lover of stories.
I've found there's nothing better than curling up to a thrilling bookish adventure filled with fantastical worlds, wit, banter, a dash of swoony-sweet romance, and of course, spine-tingling villains thwarting our heroes at every turn.
These are the stories that stick with me, the ones that I add with abandon to the balancing act that is my bookshelves and the kind that I've been writing for over a decade.
My current releases are Illuminare, an epic fantasy/dark comedy mashup featuring a heist gone wrong, and Dawnsong, a novelette focused a dancer-turned-guard who's faced with the question of life and death. Both of these stories stand on their own and are prequels to a much larger, unwieldy beast called the Spectrum Duology.
My upcoming projects include a Sleeping Beauty retelling with Whimsical Publishing, and the Spectrum Duology, an adult (but clean) epic fantasy saga where nightmares are real, wishes require a life, and it's tales told 'round the fireside that are the cruelest masters of all. It's GOT (without the gag) meets Caraval. Stay tuned for updates at my newsletter and check out the Gallery for sneak peeks of the characters you will meet!
Bryn Shutt is a 30something jack of all trades and master of none. After graduating from university in the course of study that required the least amount of term papers (accounting), Bryn went to work in the publishing industry (nonfiction).
Currently, she is the director of an internationally recognized bookseller in VA. She is also a medieval history consultant, general neat freak, and sinner saved by God's grace. She lives with her husband and animal kingdom in the Blue Ridge Mountains where she juggles a day job, the writerly nightlife, and an intense study to become fluent in K-dramas (that counts as bilingual, right?).
