Lynn Coulter

Lynn is based in Atlanta, where she lives with her husband and two crazy rescue dogs. For over two decades, she has covered homes and gardens, travel, lifestyles, and pets. She's all about flowers, travel, animals, and books (she has a stack she'll never finish). She's learning to quilt and writing a middle-grade novel.


Lynn has been a contributing editor for Delta Sky and U.S. Airways magazines and freelanced for such print and digital publications as HGTV, Travel Channel, DIY Network, Reader's Digest, AAA Traveler, Atlanta Magazine Custom Media, and more. She has also worked on contract as an online editor and copywriter for The Home Depot.

Lynn once spoke at the Epcot International Flower Show and Festival in Orlando about her book, Gardening with Heirloom Seeds. They gave her a figurine of Mickey Mouse with "Great American Gardener" and her name on it. About the experience, she said, "I was as excited as if I'd gotten an Oscar."
