Now, I'm so excited to let the readers of Writes of Passage in on some fabulous news. We are doubling the number of authors who blog here each month. Each day this week, we will be revealing one of our new authors.
It's my pleasure to get to introduce Lynn Austin.
Lynn is a former teacher who now writes and speaks full time, has won eight (Count them! Eight!) Christy Awards for her historical fiction. One of those novels, Hidden Places, has also been made into a Hallmark Channel movie. Lynn and her husband have raised three children and make their home near Chicago, Illinois.
Welcome, Lynn, to Writes of Passage. We're so delighted you're here.
