My newest T. Lynn Odom book:
In his final adventure, David wants to leave his light form behind, but danger to his friends forces him to brighten again.
In his second adventure, our teenage hero remains trapped in a coma. But he’s getting around better than ever, thanks to his hard light body and active mind. Flying, swimming, finishing summer school…all of his abilities come in handy because Sigwald Royle has arrived to take back David’s technology.
At least, that is Sig’s plan. But a darker force has appeared in our villain’s life and she has ideas of her own—secret ideas that could mean something much worse for David and his family—perhaps for the world, itself.
In The Darkening, book two of The LUMIN Project, David Griffen continues to fight for a real life that includes nothing more interesting that friends, romance and high school. But one surprise after another gets in the way, and one of them poses a threat that could darken his light forever.
Posies, Pearls and Psalm 23
Curly-Qs and Jesus Clues
My new creation is a coloring book. Of all things--my mind just went off the rails one day and I started drawing. I have a slightly primitive style but it works well with curly-qs. And including the words of Jesus from the Book of Matthew made it even more enjoyable. I devinitely believe that I was inspired! It's available in 8 1/2 by 11" paperback format on CreateSpace and will soon be available on Amazon.com and other etailers.

Book One of The LUMIN Project
My newest T. Lynn Odom book is a Young Adult sci-fi tale, the first of a trilogy that features a LUMIN. What's a LUMIN? Check it out!
Being in a coma doesn’t stop David Griffen from living life to the fullest. His new hard light body functions like his paralyzed human one—only better. David can shape-shift and fly. He has extraordinary hearing and eyesight. He can light up the dark. And his sense of right and wrong—well, if you need a hero, this sixteen-year old is your guy. Unfortunately, every hero attracts a villain.
Sigwald Royle is hunting the LUMINs that escaped from his lab, but not because he wants them to thrive. No, he has darker plans for the LUMINs. Can David avoid capture and remain hidden in the small town of Firefall, Texas? If they learn the truth about his unique body, will his new friends at Firefall High School accept him as one of their own, or will Cassie and the others run from him? Worst of all, if Sigwald captures David, will he shut off his light forever? In The Brightening, David Griffen intends to learn what being a teenager is all about…but only if he can survive.

So, I'm finally back into my website after it was locked up for a while and I realize it needs a lot of work. But I'm busy re-releasing my previously published books, so please forgive the mess!

Now and then, publishers go out of business. Such is the case with mine. That explains why you can no longer find all of my books for sale.
But fear not! I will be republishing them shortly through my own Pimpernel Publishing Company. New covers and a few content tweaks won't mean the stories are changing, but I think they'll be better...still intriguing, fun and imaginative but with a slightly lower heat level than before. I hope you'll check them out. Coming soon....Perilous Passions!
A medical examiner who can communicate with the dead meets a detective whose broken heart won't let him believe in ghosts; an American Civil War veteran on the trail of her stolen stallion encounters a wounded Confederate captain who's just trying to deliver new breeding stock to his family's horse ranch in Texas...find the paranormal, suspense and western romance you're looking for in my books. Enjoy!
The siege of the Alamo began 181 years ago, on February 23, 836, and the story of that event 1still fills the hearts of Texas—and many others—today. In fact, the Alamo is the most visited tourist site in Texas. It’s really a small place, tucked into the center of a bustling city. So why do people from all over the world flock to it?
They come because of the approximately two hundred men—Anglo as well as Hispanic—who stood for 13 days against a force of about 1500 Mexican soldiers. They come because those Defenders knew they were likely to die and yet continued to stand. They come to pay tribute to men who refused to give in to unjust laws and the changing whims of a cruel dictator. They come because those brave men died fighting for freedom. They come because the story is one of courage and heart and heartache.
After the battle, a few people were allowed to leave the Alamo, to spread a story that was supposed to be one of defeat. The story was supposed to intimidate the rebels and bring the revolution to an abrupt end. But the ending to those 13 days was something so much more than a defeat. The Defenders—no matter their personal backgrounds—put their lives on the line. They stood for liberty. They stood for justice. Their courage has been matched by few men or women before or since.
The names of those Defenders were immortalized as soon as the torch lit their remains. The smoke from their mass pyre wafted over Texas—enraging and inspiring—and out into the world and into Time.
Remember the Alamo. Tell your children the story.
They stood. Would you?
Hard light is a concept that has been around for a long time, both in fiction and in real science. Various characters have used hard light to create weapons, vehicles and other objects. Real life hard light technology lags behind imaginary life but research is being conducted in creating 3D structures made from light. Just imagine the advances that will spring from a successful venture into this fascinating science.
In my young adult series, The LUMIN Project, I've created a character that uses hard light technology to break out of the boundaries of the coma that locked him in dark silence at the age of 3. Now 16, David Griffen not only can generate a hard light body for himself but he can fly, shape-shift and illuminate the dark. New to life, new to Firefall, Texas and new to high school, David tries to fit in.
But in the world of the imagination, every hero attracts a villain. In David's case, that villain is the heir to the Royle Corporation--a scientific firm that originated the LUMIN Project that gave David life. And that heir wants his technology back, even though he personally had nothing to do with it--in fact, he wants to destroy the technology and any LUMINs that have successfully generated a light form. David thought high school was tough--staying alive will be even tougher.
