About the author (2008)

Formerly a contemporary romance fiction writer, when Lynette turned her life over to Jesus as Savior, she also turned her writing over to God.  'The Real Mary' is the first work done to honor God.  The goal of this work is to reach out to Catholics and bring clarity and truth to a topic normally surrounded by hyperbole and mystical fasinaction -  Mary.

As a former Roman Catholic, Lynette spent over forty years learning and then questioning her religion and its doctrines.  When studying the greatest words ever written - the Bible - she realized her love of the written word and her desire to write needed to be used for God's glory and purpose.  This book, 'The Real Mary' is, God willing, only the first of many that will help lift the shroud of religion from people's eyes and bring them to a greater  personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Lynette is currently working on a contemporary Christian fiction novel she hopes is exciting, romantic and  relevant to today's discriminating Christian reader.
