“Lynn Franklin has a very straightforward and easy-to-read style. She obviously knows her stuff on many different fronts and manages to introduce those topics into the story in ways that compel the reader to want to know more.”

Lynn Franklin’s five-star mystery series brings to life
gemstone history, legend and lore. From childhood,
gemstones, writing and mysteries have been an integral
part of Lynn’s life. After 30 years of teaching and
writing for newspapers, magazines and the internet, she
became an accredited jewelry professional and began
writing the Kimberley West Gemstone Mystery Series.

Although Lynn’s books are set in the Chesapeake Bay
area, researching The Carolina Emerald
offered the rare opportunity to tour a privately owned
commercial emerald mine. Lynn uses these kinds of
experiences to draw her readers into a fictional world
populated with strong characters, quirky relatives and
endearing dogs.

To learn more about Lynn’s adventures – from dancing
with swallows to flunking out of the writers’ police
academy to wrestling with Empress Josephine (the
antique rose, not Napoleon’s wife) – join The Diamond Digest.
