Pseudonym of US medical technician (specializing in trauma) and author Sheila Lynn Kelly (1961-    ), who uses S L Viehl for her sf; she has also published as by Gena Hale, Jessica Hall, Rebecca Kelly and Lynn Viehl. Her sf titles are exclusively set in the StarDoc Universe, whose first subseries, the StarDoc sequence beginning with Stardoc (2000) and ending with Dream Called Time (2010), follows the Space Opera career and adventures (some romantic) of Dr Cherijo Grey Veil as she solves medical crises (see Medicine), initially on a planet housing 200 Alien species (see Xenobiology), and in various locations subsequently. The universe she inhabits, with communications enhanced by Faster Than Light travel and Universal Translators, makes an easy background for some sophisticated presentations of the life of a doctor in this environment. The series is distinguished from James White's Sector General sequence by not being focused on a single Space Habitat hospital, nor confined to the interactions within a single medical hierarchy. The connected Bio Rescue sequence beginning with Bio Rescue (2003), in which a team of SEAL (Surgically-Enhanced, Altered Lifeforms) protect an aquatic civilization (see Under the Sea; Planetary Romance) from various external threats.

Viehl's work as by Lynn Viehl comprises mainly the various subseries set in the Darkyn Universe, which focuses on Vampires in an Urban Fantasy setting [for Urban Fantasy see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below]. [JC]
