Lyn Alexander grew up in Ottawa, Canada during the war years and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force directly out of high school. She later resigned her commission to study veterinary medicine at the University of Guelph, Ontario. She has travelled much of western Europe, the USA, and most of Canada, and speaks three foreign languages badly. In October 2009 she retired from active veterinary practice.
Hobbies & Interests: reading good fiction, history, and anything that inspires the writing muse; studying the German language; sculpting animals in wood (I have won a few international prizes, but haven't done any carving recently); golf; the dogs Tromper, Toonie and Dutch, training horses, playing the piano and the alto recorder (both badly).
Full time: writing fiction.
