Lynn Michaels started writing in sixth grade when her class formed a writers club. At the end of the year the other kids quit, but Lynn kept at it. By the time her two sons were in elementary school she had boxes full of stories. “If you don’t do something with this stuff,” her husband told her, “I’m going to make wallpaper out of it.”
Lynn’s first three category romances were published by Avon. Six more were published by Harlequin Temptation. In between she wrote The Dreaming Pool for Dell as Paula Christopher and two Regencies for Fawcett under the pseudonym of Jane Lynson. Her most recent book is Marriage By Design from Ballantine.
“I tell my husband Michael,” Lynn says, “that my writing career is all his fault.”
In 2003 Lynn received the Reviewers Choice Award for Best Contemporary Romance from Romantic Times Magazine for Mother of the Bride, her first romantic comedy published by Ballantine.
“The book begins in Kansas City, Missouri where we live, and I received the award in Kansas City,” Lynn says. “How cool is that?”
Lynn is also a three-time finalist for the Romance Writers of America’s RITA award. She has published sixteen books and one novella, with more on the way.
Otherwise, her life is pretty much like yours. She grocery shops, pumps her own gas, cleans her own house and does the laundry. She’s a fiend for coupons, collects teapots, thimbles (though she doesn’t sew) and handmade bookmarks. Her most cherished possession is a misspelled writing award.
Lynn's Regency romances are available at Regency Reads.
