Biographical and Professional Information

Lynn McElfresh is a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts. When she was in high school, she helped with a troop of Girl Scouts that had fourteen deaf girls and two girls who were deaf and blind.

She is a regular contributor to TI Life, writing stories dealing with her favorite Grenell Island and island life.
