One night in 2007, Lynda had a vivid dream of her daughter drowning in a car accident, leaving behind a book floating on the water where she disappeared. Two years later Lynda`s nightmare became reality when her 15-year-old daughter Aly died in a car accident while coming home from a swim meet. Less than three years later, Lynda`s 46-year-old husband suffered a terrible stroke, leaving him permanently disabled.
In the face of her hardships, she found that helping others was a powerful way to heal her own heart. She founded AlyBlue Media in 2013 to house her rapidly growing endeavors spanning radio, film, national events, and publishing. In the years since, she`s authored 25 books, earned four literary awards, facilitated community vigils, and has interviewed Dr. Martin Luther King`s daughter, Trayvon Martin`s mother, sisters of the late Nicole Brown Simpson, Pastor Todd Burpo of Heaven is For Real, CNN commentators and other societal newsmakers on finding healing and hope in the aftermath of life challenges.
Harnessing the power of storytelling to help people share their own heartfelt experiences, Lynda created the award-winning 5-star book series Grief Diaries, now home to more than 600 writers in 11 countries, and its sister series Real Life Diaries featuring inspiring true stories about real life experiences.
