Lynnette Labelle is an award-winning romantic suspense author who injects a dark edge into romance. She’s a 2017 RWA Golden Heart® finalist, a two-time Daphne du Maurier finalist, and a 2015 Molly winner.
Lynnette has always been a storyteller. When she wasn’t putting words to paper, she was acting them out in plays she created. By fifth grade, her teachers praised her for her creative stories. By seventh grade, she had written her first “book,” and in university, she skipped the entry-level creative writing class to take the advanced class. But life got in the way of her publishing dream, and she focused on first becoming a teacher and then starting her own editorial business. After years of watching her clients become successful, she finally decided to take her writing seriously.
Lynnette is a member of Romance Writers of America, RWA PRO, Savvy Authors, and Editorial Freelancers Association. She was a Pitch Wars mentor in 2015 and 2016.
She lives in Minnesota with her husband, twin daughters, and pets. Despite her love for fictional blood and gore, she gets weak at the sight of real blood. And spiders give her the creeps!
