Inspired by true stories, Lyn’s books teach about survival, adaptation, and respectful human interactions with nature. The stories are written and designed specifically for readers ages 5-9 years, and convey to them that every journey into the outdoors is an opportunity to experience the presence of wonder.
I coach and support authors transform their creative ideas into books that are memorable and meaningful. Whether it’s a poetic picture book, a chapter book about a family of porcupines, or a humorous nonfiction text, I’m good at understanding the essence of a manuscript and envisioning a way forward.
I’m passionate about taking time to do the deep thinking that’s needed to help you publish with confidence and create books that are celebrated by readers and reviewers alike.
