About Me

Not sure how old I am here but at least I’m not painting on the wall paper.

Hi

My name is Lynne Garner and I’ve been writing and crafting for as long as I can remember. However I began writing professionally in 1997 when I started to write a monthly three page column for Popular Crafts magazine.

Since that time I have had 24 books and more than 200 magazine features published. My books have been published in UK, USA, Canada, Holland, Australia, Korea and Indonesia. My first picture book ‘A Book For Bramble‘ has been translated into five languages and my second book ‘The Best Jumper‘ has been recorded and aired on the BBC’s CBeeBies radio channel.

When I’m not writing I teach a range of writing and craft courses for the WEA (Workers’ Educational Association) and creative writing courses as eCourses. I also run workshops for teachers and visit schools and local after school clubs to give author talks.

I’m always looking for new challenges, so if you’re in need of an author with a proven track record please feel free to contact me.

I hope you enjoy looking at my work.

Lynne.
