Lynne Hansen has written seven novels for young adults, mostly horror.
A TIME FOR WITCHES
As a teenager growing up in twenty-first-century Salem, Mindy Gold thinks she knows all about the town’s notorious witch trials. But when she wakes up in colonial Salem Village, she discovers it’s a more dangerous place than she’d ever imagined. In A Time for Witches, Mindy’s racing against the clock to uncover why she’s there—and whom she can trust—before she becomes the next victim of the Puritan hysteria.
RAVE NEW WORLD
It’s the year 2157, and every pleasure that doesn’t turn people into dutiful consumers has been classified as an addiction and outlawed. Jaden Emory’s job is to find out people’s hidden addictions–and root them out. But when rebellious raver Ally Fayre enters the picture, it’s Jaden who becomes addicted…to her.

She and her friends must band together to uncover the truth before they too, fall prey to the vampire’s foul trap — because cyberspace has fangs. (Written with Sally Bosco.

THE CHANGE (HERITAGE OF HORROR)
Although sixteen-year-old Hannah Gray hates everything about pioneer life on the Kansas prairie, becoming a werewolf is the absolute worst. Each night she changes into a fierce beast.

THE RETURN (HERITAGE OF HORROR)
After their brother dies in battle, sixteen-year-old twins Molly and Jacob Gray discover a way to bring him back to life.

Only too late do they find out that they have turned the two people they love most into the living dead.
SHADES OF BLUE AND GRAY
Twenty-first-century teen Mindy Gold and time-cop Jasper Gordon travel back to 1861 Virginia to rescue Chad, the cutest guy in Mindy’s high school.
