About Me

About me

Hi. I’m Lynn Kanter – thanks for visiting my blog.

Lynn SMALL horiz arms crossed I’m the author of the novels Her Own Vietnam, The Mayor of Heaven and On Lill Street. My short stories and essays have been published in a number of journals and anthologies.

I live in Washington, DC with my wife, and I work as a writer for a national social justice organization called the Center for Community Change. My hobbies are reading, raging against injustice and being sarcastic.

  1. How serendipitous that I found your blog! Just this week I was touched by my reading of “A Shelter Is Not A Home” in The Heart Of All There Is. What are the chances? Especially since your bio in the back of that book merely says that you are a social worker.
