Lynda is a child of the Baby-Boomer generation who grew up in Denver, CO and moved to Greenville, SC for college, the city that is now her home. Her chosen career in education lasted over thirty years working most of that time with middle school students as a teacher, then as a principal.
Her writing interested developed in adulthood starting with poetry rewritten to music for camp tunes when she worked as a camp counselor and lead counselor. As an educator she developed a Crisis Manual for School Safety. Poetry has been an outlet for her life experience with a song in publication—Though He Slay Me published at the Wilds Camp and Bob Jones University. Novels are her latest venture. Her Captivity Series has five books in publication with American Star Books—The Summer is Ended, Rivers of Babylon, Revealer of Secrets, Image of Gold, and the Power of Lions. These historical fiction novels take the Jews through the Babylonian captivity. Three other youth mysteries called the Branson Noble Mysteries are available on Smashwords - One, Two House of Blue, Three-Four Ship to Shore, Five - Six Bad Man Tricks. Her next venture to be available soon on Smashwords is a Bible Study about the five women mentioned in the ancestry of Christ.

I applaud her idea. She appears to have done considerable research on the layout of the land. Some scenes are very vivid and the book does have tension, however her writing style is rife with passive voice, telling rather than showing, and author intrusion. I'm giving 3 stars just because the idea of this 5 book series is so excellent.
