About Janet Lynn
It has always been my dream to write novels. Finally in 2001 I decided that if I don't try I'll never know. So I took classes, seminars, workshops and tried my hand at romantic comedy. I thought they were great but no one else though they were funny. So I took a deep breath and tried the romance genre. Well, that resulted in hysterical love scenes that I thought were rather sensuous.
Then Ia well-know writer told me, "Write what you love to read." For me that was good old fashioned mysteries.
With much blood and sweat, my first novel. South of the Pier. was published in 2011. That was it, I can't seem to stop writing and researching. So after four contemporary mysteries, The Pier Mystery series and three women's mysteries, I decided I wanted to write Noir. But I couldn't get in to a man's, So I approached my husband and proposed that we co-write a noir series. Thus, began the Skylar Drake Mystery series by Janet Elizabeth Lynn and Will Zeilinger.
I'm a retired Speech Pathologist and enjoyed my profession greatly. I have traveled the far reaches of the planet of work and for pleasure and collected wonderful memories, new friends, and a large basket of shampoo and conditioner samples from hotels.
