Lynn Hunt was born and raised in Miami, Florida. From an early age she knew she wanted to be a writer. By the age of seven she was penning adventure stories, and as a fourth grader started her own class newspaper. As associate editor of the Miami Springs Junior High Eagles Nest, Lynn initiated a series of interviews with celebrities visiting the Miami area. "It was hard to say no to a polite thirteen-year-old." she recalled. Her biggest story came in February 1964 when she ducked beneath the outstretched arms of police at Miami International Airport and snagged an exclusive interview with the Beatles.

In high school and at the University of Florida, Hunt's interests turned from the "five w's" of serious journalism to feature writing and advertising. One of her first jobs after college was writing and selling copy for an Orlando radio station. She also tried her hand at magazine writing and was fortunate enough to have her first four query letters result in sales to national magazines.

Through the eighties, Lynn continued to write for magazines and newspapers, however it turned out to be advertising that brought her the most national recognition. As a copywriter and broadcast producer, her ads, radio spots and television commercials won dozens of national and international awards. In addition, she was named one of the top ten healthcare writers in the country.

After marrying an officer in the Royal Navy in 1989, Lynn worked as a freelancer in London and Washington, D.C. While in England, her passion for gardening in general and roses in particular was rekindled. Today, Lynn and husband Chris live on Maryland’s Eastern Shore where she writes for The Discovery Health Channel, an independent documentary filmmaker and various national magazines. She lectures on David Austin roses throughout the eastern U.S. and serves as a horticultural judge for the American Rose Society. In addition, she’s working on several books including a mystery and a fun retrospective on song lyrics of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

With all these projects going on, Hunt still gets calls from ad agencies seeking her creative assistance. "It's nice to know that even ten years after working with people they're still interested in my ideas."
