Author Lyna Lopez has an obsession with reading stories that separate her from the real world, especially those geared toward strong women. When a hurricane ripped through her neighborhood, it got her to imagine a world in chaos, which is how The Rayne Project was born. For a while, she taught children with emotional, behavioral disabilities. In-between grading assignments, curbing the behavior and writing her book, she earned her Bachelors in English Literature and her Masters in Creative Writing with Southern New Hampshire University and wrote articles for The Odyssey Online. Now, Lyna spends as much time as she can writing books that can transport her readers to whole new worlds and loves to talk to others about it. She lives on a mini-farm in Florida with her four crazy kids, rascal-of-a-husband, two wacky dogs, one prissy cat, and all the chickens and ducks.
