Lynnette Kent

Lynnette Kent has wanted to write books for about as long as she's been reading them. The question of exactly what kind of book to write was answered when her husband suggested she write what she loved to read...romance. With his encouragement, she opened her head—and heart—to the characters in her stories and found a whole new world of friends she loves to share with readers.

Her approach to a writing career has been indirect. An undergraduate biology degree led to a job as a research assistant for three years, then two years teaching school — physics, physical science, and anatomy. Finally returning to her first love, Lynnette received a Master's degree in European History from the College of William and Mary. Her research training comes in handy when she starts a new book.

After twenty years of Navy travels, Lynnette and her family—a husband and two daughters—have settled in south eastern North Carolina. The true rulers of the household, are Dooley and Schultz, miniature dachshunds who needed a home when their original "parents" got a divorce. Their bark is about ten times the size you'd expect of such tiny dogs.

When she's not writing or driving the girls around, Lynnette plays bassoon with the local symphony, gives bassoon lessons, directs a children's choir, and leads a Girl Scout troop. The new millennium will bring the additional challenge of helping a daughter choose a college, and then letting her go. (Thank goodness there will still be one at home!)

Lynnette would rather mow the lawn than clean house—she's building a flower garden with an emphasis on irises, her favorite flower. In addition to romance, she reads mysteries, fantasy, and historical fiction, and would love to try her hand at writing each.

For now, she's delighted to be writing for Superromance, creating stories of love and laughter, tragedy and triumph, all wrapped up in a satisfying happy ending. In fact, the happy ending is the best part - life doesn't always work out the way we wish, but in these books, we get a chance to live as if it will.
