     Once a librarian, now a writer of romance, Lynn Shurr grew up in Pennsylvania Dutch country.  She earned a very impractical degree in English Literature and really did work in a burger joint her first year out of college. Moving from one humble job to another around the U.S. and Europe, she finally settled down and studied for an M.A. in Librarianship.  She found her first reference job in Lafayette, Louisiana.  As a local saying goes, "Once you taste bayou water, you will always stay here!"  She married and 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 the LSU Tigers, and take long road trips nearly anywhere. Her love of Cajun Country, its history and customs, often shows up in the background for her books.  She is the author of the Sinners sports romances: Goals for a Sinner, Wish for a Sinner, and Kicks for a Sinner (with more to come), and the Mardi Gras series: Queen of the Mardi Gras Ball, Mardi Gras Madness, and Courir de Mardi Gras.  She is also developing a lengthy series of Regencies, the Longleigh Chronicles.
