When Lyn Cote became a mother, she gave up teaching, and while raising a son and a daughter, she began working on her first novel. Rejection followed. Finally in 1997, Lyn got “the call.” Her first book, Never Alone, was chosen by the brand new Love Inspired line. Since then Lyn has had over thirty-five novels published. In 2006 Lyn’s book, Chloe, was a finalist for the RITA. In 2010, Lyn’s Her Patchwork Family finaled in the Carol Contest, and in 2011, Her Healing Ways won the Carol Award.
Lyn helped found Faith, Hope & Love Inspirational RWA Chapter in 1997. She served as president. Lyn has also written three articles for the RWR on the inspirational romance market and one on Classic Romantic Conflicts. Lyn has taught regional and national workshops. Lyn’s brand “Strong Women, Brave Stories,” always includes three elements: a strong heroine who is a passionate participant in her times, authentic historical detail and a multicultural cast of characters. She maintains an active blog with that title. Lyn also can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads. Living in northern Wisconsin in a lake cottage with her husband and four cats, Lyn spends her days writing books that show the power of divine as well as human love.
