About Lyn Miller-Lachmann
I grew up in Houston, Texas but left at age 18 to attend Princeton University, where I met my husband, Richard Lachmann. After living in Connecticut, New York City, and Wisconsin, we settled in upstate New York. We have two children, Derrick and Maddy Lachmann.
I love teaching as much as writing and have taught both middle and high school English, social studies, and Jewish studies. I currently teach American Jewish History to seventh graders at Congregation Gates of Heaven in Schenectady, New York and run a playwriting elective for fourth to seventh graders.
I have lots of different hobbies because I love trying new things. In 2007 I became the assistant host of “Los Vientos del Pueblo” a bilingual program of Latin American and Spanish music, poetry, and history that currently airs on WRPI-FM, the offiicial radio station of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, on Sundays from 2-6 pm ET. I also DJ parties, which I really like because I’m kind of awkward at parties (if you see me dancing next to you, watch out for your feet!), but DJ’ing gives me something to do and I can make sure everyone has a good time.
My husband and I enjoying traveling around the world. If I put a pin on a map for every place I’ve been, the map would have lots of pins. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to live in another place and time, and that’s one of the reasons I write historical fiction.
