Lynne Rickards was born in Canada but returned to her roots in Scotland in 1992. She has been a writer of sorts all her life, working as a translator in Toronto, a proofreader in Montreal and an editor in Glasgow. Her early career included a brief stint as a children's illustrator for Crabtree Publishing Company, and this has proved invaluable in her picture book writing.
