Pulled into a war she doesn't understand, Marieka Cordoven is just a Dutch girl who wouldn't dare resist the Germans.

Lynne Leatham Allen grew up in Othello, Washington. After thirty years as a professional cake decorator, she is retired. She attended Ricks College and married her husband, Ross, in the Idaho Falls Temple in 1970. They have six children and now are empty nesters and live in Wellsville, Utah. She loves writing and sewing. She's an artist of charcoal, pastel, and color pencil portraits; oil landscapes; and acrylic tole painting. She is a self-taught artist and seamstress and has many hobbies, including cross-stitch, hardanger, crocheting, knitting, candy making, cooking, gardening, and reading. Her writing career began with jingles and then graduated to humorous poems. Three years ago, she wrote her first children's book, The Sugarplum Fairy's Little Sister, which was awarded an honorable mention at the LUW writing contest in 2012. Frogo and Turnip also received an honorable mention at that time, and The Courtship of the Ice Queen received first place. She joined the LUW and has been writing ever since. The Tulip Resistance is her first novel. She is working on the sequel, with the tentative title Operation Tulip.
