Lynne Porter

Lynne Porter was born on a Keppel farm, a fifth-generation descendant of immigrants from the United Kingdom. She currently lives near Oxenden with her husband, Ron.

Her deep roots inspired a keen interest in the history of family, friends, and neighbours who settled in the area.

She has written and generously illustrated  OXENDEN The Way It Was, similar books about BIG BAY and NORTH KEPPEL, LAKE CHARLES, and now ZION KEPPEL.

Several of Lynne’s short stories have been published in The Leaf by The Brucedale Press, one selected first in their acrostic story contest. Our Family Farm, a collection of stories published by Brucedale in 2014, includes The Gravel Pit by Lynne.

Lynne posts and reads stories and memories on her own page at
