Lynette Sowell is the award-winning author of over 15 titles for Barbour Publishing, Harlequin, and Abingdon Press. Her fiction has been a finalist and a winner of ACFW’s Carol Award, and her weekly local newspaper column “My Front Porch” has won awards from both the Gulf Coast Press Association and Texas Press Association. When Lynette’s not writing fiction, she divides her time between editing medical reports and chasing down news stories for her local newspaper.

She loves reading, cooking, watching movies, and is always up for a road trip.
