A native West Virginian author, M. Lynne Squires is also a short story crafter, poetry dabbler, magazine columnist, and intermittent blogger.
Her award-winning memoir Letters to My Son – Reflections of Urban Appalachia at Mid-Century is a different perspective of Appalachian living during the mid-20th century years. It is a fascinating glimpse into perhaps the most mislabeled population in America – Urban Appalachians.
Her book Mid-Century Recipes from Cocktails to Comfort Food, features recipes for dishes and libations that were popular mid-century.
A member of the WV Book Team for the Charleston Gazette Mail, she regularly reviews works by West Virginia authors. She is the author of Looking Back, and Focal Point, monthly columns in Charleston Home and Living magazine. Her blog The View from My Cup features reflective little musings that remind us that every cup has a story!
Lynne writes at her Scott Depot home amidst the birds, squirrels, chipmunks and other backyard critters that hold priority status alongside writing.
Fascinated by other locales near and far, she has traveled throughout the United States as well as to Haiti, Hong Kong, Canada and China. It appears she is seeing the world one alphabet letter at a time. Two down, twenty-four to go!
A few of Lynne’s favorite things...
• A good Scrabble game
• Craftsman architecture, and bungalows
• Blenko glass, flower frogs, and Fiesta dishes
• Ice cream, coffee, and lobster
