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. The Carthage Chronicles are her time travel/sci-fi series. The Mt. Hope Southern Adventures starting with WALKING SHOES is her contemporary romantic comedy series. And GHOST HEART is a stand alone medical thriller.

So much of Flying Fossils centers around the Frio River and the secrets buried there. You may be wondering why I chose this Texas river. 

Years ago, our family used to attend a family encampment at the HE Butt Foundation Camp near Leakey, TX. This gorgeous property is tucked away in the peaceful limestone hills. You know you're there when you come to a sign that says: Drive in the River.
