She grew up in Canada, worked as an advertising copywriter in London and now calls Australia home. Her first book, The Monsoon Bride, is set in colonial Rangoon. She is finalising a book about the cosmopolitan history of the city, which she researched in the Luce Collection at the National Library of Australia. She likes travel and the outdoors and Melbourne coffee. Michelle currently teaches at RMIT University.

In 2010 Lyn completed postgraduate studies in Editing and Communications at the University of Melbourne.
