lynnhartz: My writing tends toward memoir whether it be poetry or narrative. I also have a vivid imagination and have written some fiction.

I have four books published. Club Fed Living Inside a Women's Prison, Praise Him in Prison, And Time Stood Still, and Discoveries of Eve's Daughters. All of these are also ebooks and all are available on amazon.com. I am also published in Chicken Soup for the Soul-- My Dog's Life, as well as other anthologies. All of these are on amazon.com
