She is a novelist and writing coach, and the author of fourteen novels in several genres: contemporary, fantasy/sci-fi, and historical Western romance. Ms. Lakin also guests on top writing blogs, teaches workshops, and participates in critique groups around the country. Her blog, Live Write Thrive offers encouragement and advice for all aspects of writing.
