Lynne lived in the Midwest and on the East Coast before moving to Albuquerque with her husband. Her three desert-raised children (12, 10, and 5) have no idea how blessed they are to look out the window and see mountains every day. Before having kids, she practiced law and then worked at a historical association. When she's not herding her kids, she loves to read and write children's books.
