8 Jetting Around the World in the Pages of a Book

I grew up in a very small town in central Canada where it was winter for nine months of the year. And not Hallmark-movie-winter with delicate snow falling while characters sip hot drinks wrapped only in a thick sweater and a jaunty scarf. This was eyeballs-freeze-in-thirty-seconds winter. I don’t think I would have survived if… Read More

This is my first blog post at Writerspace, and I’m so delighted to be here!  I’m probably new to most of you, even though I’ve been writing for a long time—first for Harlequin SuperRomance, then Heartwarming, followed by Love Inspired and Love Inspired Suspense, the publisher’s inspirational lines.

13 Confessions of a True Crime Addict

I am an addict of true crime documentaries and ripped from the headline stories! That’s why it was so exciting when Harlequin asked me to participate in their Unsolved Mystery series by writing Cold Case Reopened.

Lyn Cote Asks Who was Your First Love?

My February Question is–Who was your first love, I mean the “really” first one? I’m recalling my third grade crush at Glen Flora School. Oh, my, Benji had the cutest curly blond hair. And I knew he liked me because he would stand in line behind or in front of me. And he’d look at… Read More

6 Why historical romance is more important than ever:

I discovered historical romance as a teen! I fell instantly in love and devoured every Johanna Lindsay book I could get my hands on and then I discovered Julia Quinn. The rest, as they say, is history. Those books did lead me to falling in love with the whole romance genre and inspired me to… Read More

15 Confessions of a Book Lover

I grew up attending Catholic school, complete with plaid jumpers, nuns, and occasionally, class trips to the confessional in the adjacent church. When I look back on my storied past as book fiend, I find several book adjacent sins I should have confessed to kindly Fr. Roger. As that time has passed, instead I shall… Read More

Diversity needs to be the new normal in Romance Writing

I’ve been reading romance novels since I was young. Being from India, over the years, I often wondered why the men and women from my country were not represented in romance books. Why was the hero not a dashing billionaire from India? Why was the heroine not a spunky, successful girl who reminded me of… Read More

7 Writing Baby Characters

I’m so happy to be on Writerspace, talking about my new book, About That Night. One of my favorite scenes in this book involves Archie, my couple’s nine-month-old son.
