Author Lyn Cote has a penchant for writing about strong
women. That's why her stories attract her readers.

She says:

As is true of most writers, I have developed a voice or brand. My brand is “Strong Women, Brave Stories.” This brand flows through all three of the kinds of romance I write: contemporary, romantic suspense and historical. My books always include three elements:
  • a strong, usually crusading, heroine who does not fold under pressure.
  • authentic detail, especially in my historicals
  • a multi-cultural cast of characters.

Lyn Cote and her husband now live on the shores of a clear glacial lake in the northwoods of Wisconsin. After her husband was downsized in all the repercussions of 9/11, they ended up selling their home and moving to their "retirement" home—many years earlier than they had anticipated. But God has provided. Lyn has been busy writing and her husband found a job he loves in the northwoods. Now she and her husband are living in a beautiful and peaceful setting. But to keep things from getting too quiet and relaxed, they went to the local animal shelter and picked out two cats—a dainty little golden tabby that Lyn named Sadie and a big gold and white Tom that her husband named V-8. Not for the juice for the engine. V-8 has a mighty purr! His other nickname is Cadillac cat because he's a very large cat. One of his most endearing traits is loving to lie like a baby in Lyn's lap. And some days this is Lyn's largest obstacle to get her writing done!

Strong women can serve as role models and be of real encouragement to others who experience tough times. Well done, Lyn.
