About Me

Aubrey Wynne, author

Me and my new friend on Pulteney Bridge in Bath, England.

Bestselling and award-winning author Aubrey Wynne resides in the Midwest with her husband, dogs, horses, mule and barn cats. She is an elementary teacher by trade, champion of children and animals by conscience, and author by night. Obsessions include history, travel, trail riding and all things Christmas.

Her debut story, Merry Christmas, Henry, was published in November 2013 by Melange Books, LLC and received Best Short Romance in the Preditors & Editors Reader’s Choice of 2013. Wynne’s humorous shorts Pete’s Mighty Purty Privies ( Best Short in the Preditors & Editors Reader’s Choice of 2014 and Top 100 Laugh Out Loud List on Goodreads) and To Cast A Cliché are now available on Amazon.

Aubrey’s life experiences are often hidden “between the lines” of her books. As a volunteer humane investigator for rural Illinois, the furry friends she has encountered often make appearances in her stories. The upcoming  series “A Vintage Romance” was inspired by tales of her stepfather, who served for the British Air Force in WWII. The stories will be set in the first half of the 20th century, beginning with 19 Ivy Lane, in 1950s Hollywood.

Wynne’s first love is historical romance. Her medieval fantasy series “Medieval Encounters” will launch in 2016 with Rolf’s Quest.

I AM A CHAMPION FOR CHILDREN AND ANIMALS

Here are some of my babies:

Bunny was my first my horse—a beautiful copper color in the sun. Handsome Jack (isn’t he though?) reminds me of Black Beauty. I read that book a dozen times. Our mule, Thunder, is always ready to take me on a trail riding adventure. My rat terrier, Daisie, is my lap dog and the bane of my husband’s existence. Millie is our perfectly behaved Schnoodle who gets along well with the three barn cats: Peaches, Mickey (Curious George) and Tom. She is camera-shy but I will eventually get a picture of her on here.

Our sweet Bunny (above) moved on to that great pasture in the sky, June of 2014, at the ripe old age of 31.  Her career as a jumper, barrel racer, lesson and therapeutic horse will be remembered by many. Our trail rides together were some of the best I ever had. She was my first horse and took such good care of me.  We will miss you, Kate Bar Bunny. 

Moonstone Magic aka Handsome Jack is the Black Beauty I wanted since childhood. He is sweet, gorgeous, and everything you would expect in a great trail horse. He is also my equine therapist, and I don’t know what I do without him.

Chris and Thunder

Thunder was my mule until he and my husband bonded. Now they are inseparable. If there is a questionable trail or hill that needs climbing, we put hubby and the mule out front. If they can’t make it, we need to find another way. Thunder is the most affectionate, loving, intelligent, and hard-headed animal we have ever owned. 

daisie

Daisie is my rescue lapdog. She is a rat terrier/Jack Russell mix who is yappy, dominant but fearful, and a royal PIA. I love her to death. Hubby is always trying to give her away.

Obviously, we live in the country. Below is a view of our neighborhood where I walk daily with our dogs. Our ‘block’ is a two mile hike. A forest preserve is off to the left and corn fields on the right. We have dozens of deer, wild turkey, possum, raccoons, rabbits, foxes, coyotes, and the dreaded skunk. 

My apology for not getting a photo of the dueling male skunks under our house. I was in a hurry to get out. It took months for the smell to dissipate.
