About this author

This girl who grew up on a Kansas dairy farm never wanted to be a writer, but she has always been a storyteller. Her mother called it "Selling wind in a bag." Lynne started out writing plays and skits. Then in a moment of sheer insanity, she decided to take a stab at writing full-length novels. Reinventing Leona was her first and it is no longer in print. Healer of Carthage is her latest novel, releasing March 2014.

Lynne can milk a cow, drive a tractor, organize a banquet, prepare a kid for that first professional acting audition, or sit across the table and enjoy a cup of coffee with you.

She counts her thirty-plus year marriage and her two wonderful children as her greatest accomplishment.

Everything is bigger in Texas and this year’s wild and wonderful RT Booklovers Convention is no exception! The fun starts May 13-17.

I’ve never been to this convention before but I can hardly wait.

RT BasketI’ve spent hours putting together a Roman Holiday Gift basket. You have to be at the convention to win. So if you’re there be sure and drop your name in the box and let me hear from you. I’d love to me...

Where Rivers Part is a brilliant study of the complexities of family relationships. I love how Gilbert perches this family on a treacherous fault line. Why is it that we are most likely to be hurt by those we love and trusted? These characters were m ...more
