Lynn Norris was born in Hereford but has spent much of her life in London as a teacher and Adlerian counsellor. She has taught mostly in primary schools and as a keep fit and dance teacher in further education. She has always used music, drama and dance especially for children with special needs, feeling that if children are going to 'act out' or 'act up' it's better if they do it on stage where they can get a chance to shine. She has written ten musicals and many songs for children and adults which should soon be on a website. She has also written a book called Tales of the Century giving people's accounts of their lives which involved surviving the wars and technological changes of the twentieth century.
