About Lynne Collier

Lynne Collier - Author and Writing CoachI’m an author of non-fiction, usually with a geeky twist. Most of my inspiration for writing non-fiction comes from the woodlands surrounding our home, but the geeky side comes from a love of fantasy and sci-fi movies and TV shows.

My current project is about finding your Kingdom purpose if you don’t fit in one of the usual ‘boxes’, and I’m slowly writing my first fantasy novel. A short story from my childhood in mid-century England has recently been published in the latest Hot Apple Cider book, ‘Hot Apple Cider with Cinnamon’. My smaller projects – ebooks and courses – can be found on White Rose Writers and Etsy.

I’m also a Christian life coach and novice writers’ coach. I enjoy helping people realize their purpose for God’s Kingdom and see a client’s face light up when God reveals His purpose for them!

My son, Benjamin, is also a published author and grew up on the Autism Spectrum. I help with his promotions and online marketing. 

I’ll share some writing tips and coaching prompts occasionally, but most of my writing is fairly random. So expect a variety of blogs on these topics and links to the unordinary.

I live in the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada, with my husband, Stephen, and our cat, Smokey. I am very blessed.

Why I write:

My favourite quote is one I memorized as a child while I sat rocking in my great-aunts’ kitchen. She had a needlepoint on the wall which read:

“I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.” – Etienne (Stephen) Grellet.

It encourages me now many years later that words are powerful and everlasting, whether written or spoken.

Kind Words about my courses and books

Some of us know what it’s like raising or working with an autistic child. Perhaps you are a parent or a teacher, a sister, brother, friend. Autism to some, could be a shocking diagnosis. Not for one special family. Sure Lynne Collier could have tossed her hands in the air, become frustrated and shaken her fist at God. But she didn’t. The first few lines in her Dedication says it all: “I wrote this book because I have a story to tell; a story of a mother’s love and special bond with her autistic child. . .”

Glynis M. Belec on ‘Raising Benjamin Frog’

As a novice writer, compelled to record all that God has done for my family, this mini course helped identify my unique voice for His kingdom. It provided the much-needed reflection time prior to beginning the writing process, and elevated my overall level of confidence. The thought-provoking exercises helped identify the diversity of my strengths and aspects of my personality suited to certain types of writing styles. By the end of the course, I was able to clearly identify my purpose for writing and the modes I would use to share my message. Thank you, Lynne for designing such an inspirational course and for playing a role in equipping me with the knowledge and insight needed to begin my writing journey.
