  • Lynne has what I call the 'story instinct'- she is a natural storyteller and a great communicator. As an author, Lynne taught me that writing a successful book is a collaborative effort. She's passionate, energetic and fun to work with!

Where do you go when you can’t go home?

Twelve-year-old Omar and his brothers and sisters were born and raised in the beautiful and bustling city of Bosra, Syria. Street demonstrations and slogans are followed by government reprisals, and the whole of Syria is soon engulfed in a cruel civil war. When the bombs start falling, Omar and his family have no choice but to flee their homes with only what they can carry. The shadow of war follows them, until at last they have no choice but to flee their homeland altogether. If you are interested in why she came to write this story, visit Elizabeth’s website.
