Lynn Arias Bornstein is a fifth-generation native San Franciscan. She was educated at the Convent of the Sacred Heart and the Katherine Delmar Burke School. Her interest in the arts led her to pursue a degree in graphic design from the San Francisco Art Institute. She continued her studies in Mexico City in the early 1960’s, at a time when that city was a world center of culture and new ideas. Soon after her return to San Francisco, she met and married her first husband. The couple settled in Marin County, where they raised their two children in the historic town of Mill Valley. A community volunteer for over forty years, one of Bornstein’s main interests is awakening children to an appreciation of literature and the visual arts. In writing Laura English, her goal was to “create a tale in which the characters and settings would provide a pleasurable escape for the reader.”
Lynn lives in Marin County, California. She is currently writing a memoir.
