Lynna Merrill was accused at an early age that she lived in a world of her own. Since then she has changed the country, continent, and language—but she still lives in worlds of her own. As a result she is the author of the young adult dystopian novel Unnaturals and the fantasy series The Masters That Be (The Seekers of Fire, The Makers of Light, and The Weavers of Paths). In the real world Lynna has a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from the Ohio State University and works in the software industry. She has participated in various open source software projects and writes her books using VIM and LaTeX. She also makes her own cover and interior art. She lives on the southern shore of lake Ontario with her husband and soulmate, Alex.
