Brynne Chandler (born 1958) is a writer best known for her work on animated television series such as Gargoyles, Spider-Man: The Animated Series, Batman: The Animated Series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, amongst many others. She was nominated for an Emmy award for her work on Batman, and was at one point the highest-paid female animation writer working in Hollywood.[1] She also has extensive credits in writing/adapting graphic novels (including an adaptation of Anne McCaffrey's Dragonflight[2]), as well as editing and adapting manga.

At the beginning of her career (circa 1983), she was billed as J. Brynne Stephens, then simply as Brynne Stephens. As Brynne Stephens, she published a handful of short stories and a 1986 novel called The Dream Palace, all while continuing to write numerous animated television scripts. She also wrote the text of the 1984 videogame Dragonworld (video game), based on the novel by Byron Preiss and Michael Reaves.[3]

She was married for a time to Reaves, and at that time was billed as Brynne Chandler Reaves. She is the mother of noted manga adapter and novelist Mallory Reaves.
