Inara Reynolds is a retired Medic who writes in the genres of Fantasy, Science Fiction, and History with alternate endings.


Inara Reynolds spent her childhood traveling the globe with her military family, experiencing history and developing a passion for books.


Today, Inara lives in beautiful Colorado and is a freelance writer, poet, author of short stories, ghost writer, and creator of a few fantasy worlds. Inara also has journalism and copy editing experience.

Inara has written character classes for various role-playing games, as well as modules, and has published short stories that cater to the taste of the fantasy-loving and Role-play crowd. She has had a couple of poems published back in the mid-’90s.
When Inara is not writing, she is usually out supporting her oldest son in his musical endeavors, playing with her passel of German Shepherds and grandkids, or crafting the odd thing or two.

And now for some fun stuff!


I fell in love with the fantasy genre when I was five, and my babysitter read me poems by Tolkien. "Goblin Feet" was my favorite.
I used to sneak a flashlight into bed with me every night as a child. I didn’t need it to see the monsters under my bed, or chase away the darkness; I did it to read; hoping my parents wouldn’t catch me. My eyes still don’t thank me for that!
I am a total gamer geek. From tabletop to computer first shooter and MMORPGs, you name it, I have probably played it. I am not ashamed of my two tackle boxes full of dice that I keep lovingly organized. People tell me I get OCD if my dice are out of place… ever…
My passion for writing began in 1977 when that amazing red box came out, containing Dungeons and Dragons. Come to think of it; my inner geek jumped out around then also.
I have children and grandchildren; the true loves of my life.
I never miss a Marvel movie when they debut in the theaters.

I may not be Oprah, but I have a plethora of favorite things!
