Author Bio:

About the Author
Lana Lynne is the author pen name of Lana Lynne Higginbotham in the fiction genre. Lana balanced a career as a Speech-Language Pathologist with her writing until late November 2019. A step of faith led her to step away from the role of SLP to spend more time with family and to focus more on her writing. She has loved writing since childhood. During a terrible bout of illness at age ten, she utilized her mother’s typewriter for her first attempts. It stirred stories, and she wrote, putting poems and stories in a drawer all the way through school. Her high school Creative Writing teacher fanned the flames. However, her focus changed in college. She found her pen again when her daughter entered middle school and has continued to write. The resulting works include a post Civil War series of four novels, a contemporary Christian novella, a historical fiction based on/inspired by a family member’s childhood memories, a historical fiction novella based on/inspired by the author’s maternal grandparents’ 1920s love story, a historical fiction novella—a love story set in 1878, another novel will release by the end of 2021. She is a Winged Publications author. Her other writing credits include a creative nonfiction WWII novel, written with a coauthor in 2014 under her full name; weekly blog post contributions (2012-2014) and posts as part of the “Venture Galleries Author Collection” blog team (2013) under her pen name. She is a member of the East Texas Christian Writers group and a member of ACFW. Lana lives with her husband in East Texas. They are empty nesters and proud grandparents.
