Lynn Becker


Lynn Becker has been a reader and creator all her life. These days, when she’s not dreaming up picture books, she’s hiking, doing crazy-long yoga classes, and writing children’s book reviews for Shelf Awareness online magazines. As a member of the advisory board for SCBWI Central/Coastal California region, Lynn runs a monthly online Children’s Book Talk. She has an MFA from California Institute of the Arts, has worked in animation for both film and television, and has produced a number of award-winning animated films of her own. After growing up in New York City, Lynn now lives in the Southern California desert. She has one husband, two children, two cats, and eighteen chickens. Lynn is repped by Lori Steel.


Fun Fact: Lynn often revises her “List of Ten Books to Have on Hand When Marooned on a Desert Island,” but it always includes I Capture the Castle, Jane Eyre, Lord of the Rings, The Scorpio Races, and her Junior Illustrated Library edition of Grimm’s Fairy Tales.
