Meet Lynn Maria Thompson:
She's the founder of Thompson Writing & Editing.

Her latest work is a multi-volume reference guide entitled An Author's Guide to Literary Genres. Volume 1, Juvenile (Children's) Nonfiction was released in February, 2023. Whether you're a self-published author or a professional working in the publishing industry, you'll find value in this handy reference!

In 2019, Lynn released a book entitled The Feline CEO: How Following a Cat's Lead Can Make You a Better Business Leader. It takes a fresh look at corporate leadership from the perspective of a cat's behavior. Lynn also updated her book for authors, An Author's Guide to Online Marketing, now available in its second edition, that helps authors use the power of the internet to fuel sales for their books.

Before founding her own business, Lynn worked 23 years in sales, marketing, and communications for a major directory publisher. This gave her the experience of working with businesses in every industry. In The Feline CEO, Lynn combines her own experience with advice from other successful CEOs and feline behavior experts.

Just after releasing volume 1 of An Author's Guide to Literary Genres, Lynn was asked to become president of the Cat Writers' Association. This has severely curtailed the time she has to take on additional clients, but for the right projects, she can make the time.
