Lynne Spreen Contributor

Lynne Spreen Lynne Morgan Spreen doesn’t plan to fight the aging process. Instead, she’s on a mission to discover the power and wisdom of the second half, wrap it up in a beautiful package and present it to you here at BA50. Lynne is also a webmaster, teaches blogging and social media classes, and on a personal note, finds herself sandwiched between her elderly mom and her grandbabies. Her novel, Dakota Blues, is a story of midlife re-empowerment, and will be published this spring. You can find her musings at, @LynneSpreen, and on YouTube.
