Author Lyn Farrell
- Lyn Farquhar – author name Lyn Farrell – has an M.A. and a Ph.D. from Michigan State University where she worked for the medical school until her retirement. Subsequently, she published a 7 book series of mysteries with her daughter (penname Lia Farrell) entitled the “Mae December mysteries.” She then published a second mystery series about private investigators, starting with “The Blind Switch.” The second in that series, “The Blind Split” will be released in 2022. A third is planned.
- In a departure from mysteries, Lyn will publish "The Cottonwoods" a book in the women's fiction genre, coming out in August, 2021.
- Lyn is a master gardener, a “dog mom” to her Cavalier Spaniel, Dezi, and the granddaughter of noted artist Eugene Iverd. She is the mother of two bio daughters, six step-kids and twelve grandchildren. When she isn’t writing, spending time with family, gardening or playing with Dezi, she searches for the original art by her grandfather.
Fifteen years after her mother’s death, Amber sets off to honor the promise she made--to find an ancient treasure hidden in the family’s century-old farmhouse. She doubts its existence, but the farm is about to be sold and if the treasure is ever to be found, it’s time. She locates her great Grandmother's journal which talks of shimmering golden coins, but also tells of her bitterness. Her husband stole her dowry and ripped her from her homeland. It’s a familiar concept to Amber who struggles with her own resentment about having to become a “mother” to her little sister, Claire, after her mother died.
