Lynne Ludwick lives on the central coast of California with her dog, Oakley. She has three grown children and four grandchildren. She retired from the public school system as an elementary special education teacher. She enjoys the outdoors in her free time: hiking, kayaking, walking the beaches. She has published a few items locally and won honorable mention in a national contest for fiction writing. In retirement, she has had more time to pursue writing, and this is her first published book. A portion of book sale proceeds helps finance a schlolarship fund for local college-bound FFA students or students who have lost a parent in any war.
