Say Hello to Lyn Cote

We've interview Eleanor from Building a Family, now its time to ask the author Lyn Cote a few questions. Say hello to Lyn.
Lyn, we'd love to know:

How long did it take you to write this book?
About 5 months

How did it get the title?
My editor usually comes up with a title because I am "title-challenged." She suggested Instant Family but I said that sounded like a marriage of convenience story. This isn't one. So she came back with Building a Family. This was great since the book is the last in my series about three families receiving Habitat for Humanity houses so the concept of "building" is central. And the story truly records the building of a family.

What number book is this for you?
36

What are you working on now?
My next LIH out Nov 2012. It does not have a title but I did give the series a working title of "Wilderness Brides." Readers who loved my "Gabriel Sisters" series will recognize this book's heroine as the prostitute that at the end of Her Healing Ways, Dr. Mercy sends away to start a new life with her family in PA. This is Sunny's story and her "wounded" hero, Noah.

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. Your next project sounds very interesting.

  4. 36 books makes me sound like I've been writing since the stone age, but other authors are writing faster than I am now!
