Lynne Melcombe

I have been writing and editing professionally for 30 years ... about the same amount of time I've been raising three wonderful people.

Before that, I earned a degree in anthropology, put myself through school by doing archaeology, did a stint as a youth worker, and travelled.

I live in an older home in Port Moody, BC, Canada, nestled amongst the trees. I have an incredible view of mountains and ocean, and share the neighbourhood with lots of urban wildlife. And I have a little dog with a very big personality.

I have a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Nonfiction Writing from the University of King's College in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. My master's project is the manuscript for my first book, a combination memoir/research/call to action about mild traumatic brain injury (concussion).

I walk my little dog a lot, and on the weekends in summer I work in my garden. That's one of my irises in the background photo.
