Lynn Cullen grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana, the fifth girl in a family of seven children. She learned to love history combined with traveling while visiting historic sites across the U.S. on annual family camping trips. She attended Indiana University in Bloomington and Fort Wayne, and took writing classes with Tom McHaney at Georgia State. She wrote childrenâ€™s books as her three daughters were growing up, while working in a pediatric office and later, at Emory University on the editorial staff of a psychoanalytic journal. While her camping expeditions across the States have become fact-finding missions across Europe, she still loves digging into the past. She does not miss, however, sleeping in musty sleeping bags. Or eating canned fruit cocktail.
Lynn Cullen's recent novel, Mrs. Poe, a national bestseller, has been named a Target Book Club Pick, an NPR 2013 Great Read, an Oprah.com "Book that Makes Time Stand Still," a People pick, and an Indie Next List selection. Her current release, Twain's End, called "reputation squaring...incendiary" by the New York Times and "intelligently drawn" by Library Journal, is an Indie Next selection, People Book of the Week, and 2016 Townsend Prize finalist. Cullen, named "the Bronte of our day" by the Huffington Post, now lives in Atlanta surrounded by her large family, and, like Mark Twain, enjoys being bossed around by cats.
