Lynn Grubb was placed for adoption at birth with The Cradle of Evanston, Illinois. She grew up in Centerville, Ohio and got her start writing by getting in trouble for passing notes at school.
Lynn graduated from Wright State University and has a paralegal certificate. She plays the violin and the keyboard. She is active in adoptee rights and has been a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA/GAL) for her local juvenile court.
As Lynn was nearing age 40, she embarked on a search for her roots and during that time, realized her passion for writing about the complexities of being adopted. Since finding her birth family, Lynn has learned of her Native American ancestry through DNA testing and discovered she is related to E.B. White, author of Charlotte's Web.
Lynn writes from a perspective of her many roles: adult adoptee, adoptive parent, step-parent, biological parent and child advocate.
