About the Author
Lynne Rike Herndon grew up in Sidney, Ohio, in a loving family, the second of two sisters. She started her scholastic endeavors at Muskingum College but after two years found her talent in applied music, fun yet disappointing. Her interests shifted to writing non-fiction. She has been a longtime student of philosophy, creative writing, and comparative religion and has written many essays, short stories, and published poetry. Her extensive reading and life experiences have convinced her that various religious beliefs are often more compatible than is commonly understood. A questioner by nature, she has long considered the injustices in the world and the failure of any religion to totally solve these problems. Loss of a newborn son brought her to question her God and ultimately changed her life. She began to have spiritual experiences that opened her world to the study of parapsychology, the psyche, and extrasensory perception. In 1983 she developed progressive peripheral neuropathy. While dealing with this new challenge, retirement from the Department of Psychiatry at Vanderbilt University allowed her to focus on her first novel, Borderline. She explores traditional Christianity and the possibility of reincarnation and when she writes about Jessica in Borderline, she truly feels Jessica's pain as her neuropathy is always a menacing shadow. She writes that relationships can endure through the ages and love can solve the problems of the human mind. Lynne, her husband, William, and their British Blue cat, Thomas Patton, live happily in Nashville, Tennessee. Their children and grandchildren live in nearby locations.

This can't be me sitting here waiting, waiting to see a man I don't even know at all, except from a phone conversation. Jessica sat on a waiting bench in the front of the restaurant, letting her thoughts go in and out like any silly schoolgirl. My guilt is hanging from me like moss on a tree! It probably shows on my face. Is anybody looking? Her thoughts traveled back to the ad she had put in the personals. She wasn't courageous enough to do it by herself, but what fun Martha and she had had doing it. But now she chose to meet her recklessness head-on. Thinking back, she certainly knew why she did it; now she would try to be casual and not show her nervousness and anticipation. She felt a little like she had when she was a teenager in school and had to give a speech. Her palms were sweaty. The man who was supposed to meet her here had been the only one who sounded promising, and he held his cards. The others had sounded goony. But this one's voice kept ringing in her ears. What if he failed to show? She knew, though, she would look to him as the ad had read: Cultured, attractive SWF, happy with all life has to offer," her ad began.
