Journey into the World of the Unregistered.

When Freedom Has a Price, Who Will Stand Unafraid?

The Metrics government has claimed success in relocating millions of Unregistered citizens out west. But the group who escaped their insidious plan knows the truth: the government had their fellow outsiders murdered.

As winter approaches the hidden monastery in the hills, Bristol, Samara, Denver, and Jude realize that the responsibilities of keeping their community safe and plotting their next escape has fallen upon them.

But even when they reach the allusive outside, the political turmoil in their new country makes them question if life there is any better than under the Metrics.

As trust fractures between the four friends and each tries to find a way to function in this strange new world, will they be able to continue working together to find the future they thought they wanted?

"Lynch's exceptional near-future totalitarian nightmare of obedience and forced sterilization, all major individual decisions are removed. Four central characters in an unnamed city resent their repressive lives...Their lives intertwine in Lynch's scant but complex book, which packs in scathing commentaries on police brutality, crime prevention, population control, classism, and state-sponsored murder." - PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY ★★★★


Q: Why do you write?

A: Writing is a compulsive behavior of mine. I started filling journals with observations, stories poems, lists, and quotes throughout my childhood and just never stopped. I've had a blog ever since my family got a computer. I'd always wanted to write novels, but up until recently, I lacked the discipline. Now that I've found a process that works for me, I write novels because it's what lights me up; it fulfills me.

Q: What do you write?

A: Right now, I write fiction with speculative elements. Real life can also be bizarre and thrilling, but I really enjoy playing with science and technology, magic, and time travel. Below is the reading order for my current series.


  1. Unregistered
  2. Unafraid

Q: Why should readers pick up your books?

A: Readers are on my mind the entire time I'm writing. I try to be thoughtful enough to craft the experience that a reader will have when they enter the world of my novel. I'm always proud to say that I write commercial fiction, because it means my stories are created with the reader in mind.
