Lynette Loeppky was born and raised on the flat Manitoba prairie where the summer rain is always warm. She graduated from the University of Calgary with a BA, then stumbled into a corporate sales career. Lynette has travelled extensively, and lived for a time in Europe, but counts amongst her greatest adventures the eight years she and her partner Cecile tended an “Old MacDonald”-style hobby farm in southern Alberta. She now lives in Calgary with her dogs, Noddy and Charlie, who do an excellent job of getting her away from her computer and out into the elements on a daily basis. Cease is her first book.
