Lyn C is a 60 year old widow who is thoroughly enjoying semiretirement, which gives her plenty of time to travel, write, read and enjoy her family. Hah! She has had five short stories published. One of her short stories – “Nematalien” – was nominated for the short lived Chronos Award in 2013, and was recently reprinted in the Antares Anthology, Volume 1. Her first novel Nil By Mouth was first published in 2014 with Satalyte Publishing, and was shortlisted for both the Aurealis Award (SF Category) and the Norma K Hemming Award in 2015. She resides, with one of her two adult children, multiple cats, and one canary, in a hidden area less than ten kilometres from the Melbourne CBD (in Australia) surrounded by creeks and wooded hills.
