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 on her writing. Her first attempts were more novelettes than magazine-length stories, but they gave her a taste for 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” was her first foray into novel writing. Since the completion of “Der Reizen”, four more books have been added to the series – “Sweet On Death”, “Harvest of Values”, “Slippery Slopes”, and “Beginnings”. She is currently working on having “Der Reizen” made into an audiobook (with the others to follow when funds permit) and working on a series of short stories that may or may not become another book.
Lynn is owned and supervised by two Siamese cats. She has two grown-and-flown children, one of whom is a beta reader for her. She currently resides in central Saskatchewan and enjoys knitting, crocheting, and all manner of other needlecrafts when she’s not at the computer writing stories or maintaining websites. She is the secretary/librarian for the Creative Stitchers Guild and secretary/treasurer for the Prince Albert Writers Group. She is also in charge of getting the PAWG anthology “There Something About Prince Albert” published, printed, and available from the various members of the group.
Lynn can also be found in DelphiForums, where she has a chatroom for discussions on cabbages and kings, and everything in between. There’s no cost to join the forums but you do have to register in order to enter the chatrooms. The main chat time is 9 pm Eastern on Friday nights, but if someone wants to contact her before then, they’re quite welcome to email her.
