(8th) Lynne Garner

Lynne has been writing and crafting for as long as she can remember. However, she began writing professionally in 1997 when she landed her first monthly three-page column with Popular Crafts magazine. Since that time she has had 24 books and more than 300 magazine features traditionally published. Her books have been published in UK, USA, Canada, Holland, Australia, Korea and Indonesia. Her first picture book 'A Book For Bramble' was translated into five languages and her second picture book 'The Best Jumper' was recorded and aired on the BBC's CBeeBies radio channel.
In 2011 Lynne decided that a handful of books that had almost been traditionally published (you'll be amazed how many books get 'pulled' at the very last minute) would be Indie published by Mad Moment Media (a company she and her partner set up in the same year). 

At the moment Lynne is working on the following new titles:
  • Ten Tales for Moon Meadow Farm
  • Hedgehog of Moon Meadow Farm
  • Fox of Moon Meadow Farm

Her books published by Mad Moment Media available now are:
