Once a librarian, now a writer of romance, Lynn Shurr grew up in Pennsylvania Dutch country. She attended a state college and earned a very impractical B.A. in English Literature. Her first job out of school really was working as a cashier in a burger joint. Moving from one humble job to another, she traveled to North Carolina, then Germany, then California where she buckled down and studied for an M.A. in Librarianship.
New degree in hand, she found her first reference job in the Heart of Cajun Country, Lafayette, Louisiana. For her, the old saying, “Once you’ve tasted bayou water, you will always stay here” came true. She raised three children not far from the Bayou Teche and lives there still with her astronomer husband.
When not writing, Lynn likes to paint, cheer for the New Orleans Saints and LSU Tigers, and take long road trips nearly anywhere. Her love of the bayou country, its history and customs, often shows in the background for her books.
She is the author of the popular Sinners sports romance series, Goals for a Sinner, Wish for a Sinner, Kicks for a Sinner, Paradise for a Sinner, and Love Letter for a Sinner, and the Mardi Gras series: Queen of the Mardi Gras Ball, Mardi Gras Madness and Courir de Mardi Gras (scheduled for January, 2015). She has also debuted a new contemporary western series: The Convent Rose, A Wild Red Roes, and Always Yellow Roses (release date, September 5, 2014). Her stand-alone contemporary romance, A Trashy Affair, was published in 2013 along with two Cajun romances, A Taste of Bayou Water and Blessings and Curses.
