I've just looked through the website (for which I'd lost the address in the course of our move back from Ireland), and was hoping that we had a current location for Lynn Osborne--but alas, we don't. I've tried finding her on the internet, but without success. I do know that she was a student at UC Berkeley in fall of 1968, when I stayed with her for a couple of nights, but lost track of her after that. (I had a very strong dream about her a couple of months ago, after many years of her never crossing my mind, so that was why I tried to find her.)

I have also, over the years, tried to relocate Luis Carrasco, who I know moved back to Chile; but while we were in touch for several years, again we lost track of one another. I did know that his twin sister had married, and I see that her married name is on the site, but no further info on her, either. Ah, well.

Don't know if I'll be able to make it to the reunion, but I'll keep it in mind. Will definitely send an update on my bio and a new photo--when I finish the current book!



After graduating from the University of Miami with a B.S. in chemistry, I attended UM medical school for a year, decided I would rather write about medicine than practice it, and returned to graduate school at UM and UCLA, where I received an M.A. in English History. Shortly after beginning work as a technical writer at the Los Angeles Police Department, I sold my first fantasy trilogy (Deryni Rising, Deryni Checkmate, and High Deryni) to Ballantine Books. After selling a second trilogy and a stand-alone thriller, Lammas Night), I was able to quit LAPD and begin writing fulltime--which has to be one of the neatest occupations in the world. (See my website at www.deryni.net/ for a complete bibliography and many photos of self, family, home in Ireland, and pets.)

Shortly after my "independence day," I met and married a man well worth waiting for (Scott MacMillan), acquired a really neat son (Cameron), and a few years later (1986) moved with them and the family cat to Ireland, where we are restoring a gothic revival house built in 1832-7, complete with resident ghosts (at least two). Life is good!
