E. Lynn Cormick began writing at age eleven until a family member told her that writing was a waste of time. She picked up her writing again when she joined the Canadian Armed Forces. After taking an ICS course in Journalism and Short Story Writing and a Long Ridge Writers Group course for magazine writing, Lynn decided to work more seriously at her writing. Her first attempts were more novelettes than magazine length stories, but they gave her a taste for the longer stories. She has written two books during stints with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and is planning to write more using the same incentive. She has been published in local papers and in military newsletters. “Der Reizen” is her first foray into novel writing. She has also earned certificates as an Audiovisual Technician and in New Media Communications.
Lynn is owned and supervised by two Siamese cats and an orange and a grey tabby. She has two grown-and-flown children, one of whom is a beta reader for her. She currently resides in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and enjoys knitting, crocheting and all manner of other needle crafts when she’s not at the computer writing stories or maintaining websites. She is the secretary/librarian for the Creative Stitchers Guild and secretary for the Prince Albert Writers Group. She makes time to volunteer at the local food bank.
