Lynn's writing background is research driven. She has ghostwritten a novel for a self-help guru based on his teachings, written extensively on health and wellness issues with specific emphasis on prenatal and postnatal care, and edited an on-line alternative medical journal. She was a featured writer for a couples' relationship site where she wrote informed, and often humorous articles on sex.

Her ten-plus years in the Finance Industry allowed her to write on business topics from sector analysis to the commercial success of coffee pods. Lynn has done her share of marketing work as well. She used to write commercials for a popular Chicago radio station, and does market blogging for an invitation and event accessories website.

Lynn completed the Second City Comedy Writing Program, a year-long, multi-level process in which one has to be accepted into the final course. She was accepted for the final, and with a team, created a whole show which was performed on a Second City stage. During her study at Second City, she submitted a sketch to the Mary Scruggs Works by Women Festival which was not only accepted but won the top award given for that year. Her experience during, and post-Second City expanded her writing abilities to include proper script writing for both stage and screen.

She attended Marymount College in Tarrytown, New York, and Loyola University in Chicago where she received her BA in History. She is extremely comfortable collecting and synthesizing research. She graduated Magna Cum Laude and went on to her Masters coursework at the University of Chicago where she concentrated on Urban Planning.
