About the Author
a high dusty shelf in her bedroom.
A resident of Arizona for many years now, she lives with her husband and their black and white cat, Topper. Two grown-up daughters have homes and families of their own in other places.
With two degrees in Elementary Ed, Lynda loved teaching in grades 1,2,3,4, and 5 of public schools for twenty-one years. Even after retirement she continued to work with students in a reading intervention program.
...And throughout her adult life she wrote, painted, and revised her stories. At last, she began to realize that she owned a desk full of ideas, problems, and children who lived only in her imagination.
Lynda decided that books without readers were a waste of her joy and inspiration!
Ebooks offered an audience, and completed the communication cycle that sometimes had begun with a germ of an idea many years before. Seven of these have been published, and most of them are available on this market.
Lynda is working on three more, but just like the young readers in her audience, the stories are still growing and changing.
