Lynn Whyte-Heath is stopping by the blog today. Lynn and I know each other from the Booktrap, a writer’s marketing cooperative. Welcome to the blog, Lynn. I had a few technical difficulties this week, so we’re not posting on Wednesday. Tell us something about yourself.

We live in Farley green, Albury, UK. Although I am originally from Manchester and my Husband is from Cornwall.
I retired from the railway in November 2013. I am married to Alan and have four grown up children, between us.

By day, I teach History and English to a bunch of crazy, loveable 8th graders who probably do more to educate me than I do them. By night, I enjoy nothing more than a relaxing night with my fiancée drinking a beer, watching a movie, or having a shopping cart race.
