Meet the Author

Lynn Allen was born in the northeast of Scotland into a family that has lived in the region of Brechin for centuries. In the 1960s she migrated to Perth, Australia, where she now lives and works as an independent thinker, writer and coach.


During her more than 20 years as an executive in the information services sector, including the computer industry and 12 years as a government CEO, Lynn has written many papers on leadership, strategy and the use of technology.


She has studied and loved the novel all her life, believing in the power of story to illuminate and explore the human condition. Her particular interests are women's literature and feminism.


Lynn's novel, Illusion, is a contemplation of what can happen when a single woman's integrity is challenged while working as a public servant in politically charged environments.


She is currently writing a novel that explores what highly educated, professional baby-boomer women might do after they leave paid employment. Is the world ready for this group of women and their wisdom? Are the women themselves prepared to generate another feminist agenda?
