A Very Special Christmas



This has ben an eventful year for my family. Our daughter and her spouse adopted three little munchkins in March, two sisters and their big brother, giving Hubby and me three more precious grandchildren with whom to celebrate the miracle of Christmas. Aren’t they adorable?!!

Our next big event came in August when our oldest step-granddaughter Jordan wed her longtime beau and future doctor, Travis. What a handsome couple!


Then, on December 17th, our son Dan married his sweetheart Jessica. All six of his children (four step-kids and two of his own, all from his first marriage) stood up for him and his bride. His best friend Tim conducted the ceremony, doing a wonderful job. I am delighted to share with you a few photos from the big day.

Their wedding was a bit non-traditional. The bride did not wear a veil and instead of being escorted up the aisle by her father, she and Dan chose to escort each other. They are a thoroughly modern couple!

Yup, our family sure did have a busy and romantic year. I’m looking forward to another wonderful year ahead, and I wish the same for all of you, my friends. Merry Christmas!

Meanwhile, if you want to get lost in a world of steamy romance and adventure, I hope you will give my novels a try. I am a cross genre author writing in both the western historical romance and contemporary romance genres, all with supernatural elements. You can find my books on my Amazon Author Page. http://amzn.to/Y3aotC

lyn-in-cat-shirt-largeI’ve been writing for over thirty years, as a hobby much of that time. You see, I write mainly romance, and for a long while I was embarrassed to admit it to anyone but my husband. Foolish of me when I look back at that period, but a fact I can’t escape.

Trained in the visual arts, I worked as a fashion illustrator and art instructor in Minneapolis, where I grew up, married and had my children. When my husband accepted a company transfer to the Chicago area, I quit working to stay home with our two young kids. However, it wasn’t long before I grew bored. Hunting for an illustrating job and trustworthy child care didn’t appeal to me. Plus, my hands were becoming weaker due to a genetic neurological disorder, impairing my drawing ability.

So, I took up writing as a creative outlet. I’d always loved to read…

Rescue Me: Purrfect Companions



It’s Release Day for Rescue Me – Purrfect Companions. A charity anthology in which I’m privileged to have a story.

My story “Cecilia’s Tale” talks about how my kitty found me in Israel. Cecilia then shared the next 16 years of my life with me and eventually came to America. She passed over the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago, but is still very much in my thoughts.
