Lyn Cote Asks-Is God an Author?

on July 13, 2018

I think He is. And a very good one. Just think of all the movies made of his “memorable” stories–Samson and Delilah (could a man be that dumb?–evidently–yes), The Ten Commandments (will we ever forget the parting of the Red Sea or the angel of death?), and what about Queen Esther? It seems to me… Read More

Are You Still Writing?

on June 14, 2018

–Lyn Cote This is a question I get fairly often from people I don’t know very well. I say, “Yes, that’s my job.” Then people ask, “How many books have you written?” And they act surprised when I reply, “Nearly 50.” I mean I’ve been writing for many years–at least two books a year–they accumulate–like… Read More

on May 14, 2018

Can you believe it–I’m asking for help in choosing a cover model. At least nobody can say I’ve just spent the winter sitting by the fire sipping hot cocoa! Though I did do some of that. I already decided that my next book will be out in June and that it’s another “season” in my… Read More

Do You Like Where You Live and Why?

on March 14, 2018

Lyn Cote here-I know that’s not a question people ask you directly but many times they ask it indirectly with comments, intimating that they wouldn’t want to live where you do!  I live in the far northwoods of Wisconsin. Lake Superior is just an hour an a half drive north of my house. And people,… Read More

Valentine’s Day -Thumbs Up or Down?

on February 14, 2018

Last Thursday I took part in a Valentine’s Day Party on Facebook. One of the authors asked the readers–How did you meet your husband or true love? It seemed an appropriate question for that event. Two readers, however, responded that they were single and were happy to be. And I thought-YES! I know that it’s… Read More
