Lynn Karlsen is a wife and mother of four. As her children have grown and moved on in life, Lynn has found more time to indulge her love for writing. Her husband supports her in many ways as she fills paper with ink by their cozy wood stove or on their covered deck in the Pacific Northwest. Experiences as a mother and teacher have provided a multitude of ideas for stories she writes for children. Lynn is a member of both ACFW and their subgroup for children’s fiction writers.
