About the Author

Lynne Watts

Children as well as adults face problems every day. As an elementary school counselor for twenty years in Canton Georgia, I helped children solve hundreds of problems much like the ones Wyatt is faced with in the Wyatt series. I am continually amazed and encouraged by the creativity, enthusiasm and courage of children. Through the Wyatt stories, I hope to empower many more children to become successful problem solvers and leaders in their everyday lives.

I have masters and a specialist degree in Education and Counseling from Georgia State University. Before starting my own coaching and consulting business, I worked as an addiction counselor and a rehab counselor as well as a school counselor for 30+ years. Today as a certified DISC trainer and business coach I help clients create work they can love so they can do work that matters. I provide individual coaching and staff training in personality style, crucial conversations and creating a positive environment.

My most rewarding role however, has been that of parent to my two creative and talented daughters, Laura and Hayley. It has been an honor and a privilege to encourage them to discover and achieve their dreams.
