More About the Author
A marketing communications specialist, writer, and brand storyteller, Lynn has worked on high-profile accounts across a range of industries. She has been the recipient of numerous national and regional advertising creative awards. She also writes the blogs, Savoring the Seasons and Peaceful Places Boston.
As someone who has spent her career in the high-pressure, fast-paced advertising world, Lynn recognizes the restorative power of that comes from moments of peacefulness and serenity. She enjoys travel, cooking, music, birdwatching, storytelling, kayaking, cheering on the Red Sox, and singing with the women's chorus Voices From The Heart. She's particularly fond of relaxing with her journal, camera, watercolors, and binoculars amid the marshes near Plum Island Sound-m-off the northeast coast of Massachusetts.
Lynn holds a B. A. in sociology from Northwestern University. She divides her time between her homes in Boston and on the New Hampshire seacoast.
