Lynne was born and raised in rural Mississippi, where her maternal grandparents farmed cotton and her mother is one of their fifteen children. She grew up during the era of the Civil Rights Movement and came of age during the volatile integration of Mississippi's schools. Lynne attended nursing school at Mississippi University for Women, graduating in 1981. She completed both a masters and a PhD in nursing and now teaches full-time at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. A lifetime of struggling to understand the complex race relations in Mississippi, a love of storytelling, and a desire to follow humbly in the footsteps of the great Southern writers prompted Lynne Bryant to write her debut novel Catfish Alley. Contemporary stories defined by the context of Southern history continue to intrigue Lynne. College professor by day and writer by night, writing is her way to capture the voices and stories of the American South, the home of her heart.
