Lynn Crymble taught high school French and Theatre for eight years until her MS diagnosis made it abundantly clear that she should simplify her life and dedicate herself to the fulfilling art of homemaking and personal growth. Unfortunately, Lynn discovered she was a terrible cook, had no dexterity with needles or sewing, she was adverse to crafts, and unable to stomach anything remotely related to self help. As a result, Lynn spent inordinate amounts of time reading Rumi poems to her cat and composing vitriolic letters of complaint to editors everywhere. Naturally, given enough time, she wrote It Can Happen To You (HarperCollins 2009). Lynn lives with her husband and daughter in North Vancouver, BC, and has yet to finish any self improvement book. Her cat, however, is extremely enlightened.
