Lynne Garner

I began writing professionally in 1997 when I produced a two page monthly column for a craft magazine called Popular Crafts. Since that time I've had 22 books and over 200 features published. I started writing non-fiction and fulfilled a life-long ambition in 2007 when I had my first picture book published -  A Book For Bramble. My second traditionally published book The Best Jumper has been recorded by the BBC and aired on the CBeeBies radio channel. In 2010 I had 11 of my picture books turned into apps by Mad Moment Media Ltd, which are available for use on the iPhone and iPad via iTunes. In 2011 five of these were turned into eBooks, which are available for download from Amazon.

Author visits:
I love to share my passion for writing and reading with anyone who will listen. If you work in a school, run an after school club or belong to a group such as the WI or Mother's Union, you are based within a 25 miles radius of Stansted Airport and would like to organise a visit please contact me at  

What I do when I'm not writing:
In my spare time I walk the dog (a lot!) and help run a non-funded hedgehog rescue centre called Herts Hogline. We rescue sick, injured and orphaned hedgehogs, which is where the idea for my very first story A Book For Bramble came from. Now for a cute hedgehog picture!

I hope you enjoy reading the blogs on the Picture Book Den.
