Lynne describes herself as an Elderwoman, living an estuarine lifestyle on the North Coast of New South Wales in Australia. It was 1987 when she entered recovery. She is the mother of two and a Grandmother. In 2014 she lost her partner. He was found beside the road in the middle of the Forest where he did his morning Buddhist meditations. Three months later, run down and devastated by grief she developed a sepsis pneumonia and spent 3 weeks in a coma. She describes it as a long, slow dreaming. Having survived her illness, a year later she says she thought she would come back from her coma complete and wise. However, she feels she didn’t. She thanks God for Americans who have been awake in the Middle of her Darkest Nights and Online.
