MEET THE AUTHOR
Lynanne Rockhill writes fiction and nonfiction. She had a one-act play produced off-off-off Broadway, a screenplay produced into an independent feature movie, several produced scripts for documentaries, freelance articles, and now writing her first novel and working on another screenplay. Lynanne defines her creative fiction as poetic narratives and her poetry as personal flash stories.
I inherited a library from my step-grandfather, and for many years I didn’t realize its wealth of information and knowledge might also interest others. I read many of the books and added my own books to the collection. Most of these books taught me many things that influenced and shaped my thoughts and beliefs throughout my life, but it was the historical biographies that had the most profound affect.
I decided to dig into my collection of books and share on my website what I discovered, including some of my historical experiences. I expect I will need to expand my research beyond my library to compare, verify, and add information, so accessing the internet and other libraries will be necessary.
I know I will enjoy this study into America’s past, and I hope you will too. Thanks for visiting.
Lynanne is a professionally-trained actor from New York in the methods of Meisner, Adler, and Stanislavsky. Her training became the cornerstone for her fictional writing. Character development, scene study, intentions, emotional and fantasy memories, and improvisations all shaped her writing skill into a solid understanding of the importance of character, plot, scene structure, relationships, triangles, and dialogue.
