Lyn grew up in Sydney near a beach and loves to be close to the sea, which finds its way into many of her poems. At twenty she went to live in London for two years and on her return to Australia worked in art galleries, including The Yellow House, before moving to northern NSW and, later, to a sheep farm in Tasmania. She now lives near a beach outside Hobart with her husband and small white dog. Most of her work has involved books as children's librarian, teacher of library and information studies, editor and small press publisher. Lyn's poetry, stories and haiku have been widely published. Her haiku book, Walking the Tideline, came out in 2001 and a poetry collection, Speaking with Ghosts was published by Ginninderra Press in 2002. In 2008 Walleah Press published the anthology Seasoned with Honey, where her work appears with three other women poets. The manuscript won a FAW National Literary Award.
