Jerilyn Tyner’s infatuation with language and literature began with memorizing Little Golden Books when she was a preschooler. Her love continued to adulthood and through over two decades of freelance writing and teaching high school English. Her first novel, The Canterbury Question, reflects her talent for telling a good story as well as her respect for teachers whose faith and vision have helped shape our country. Jerilyn and her husband live in beautiful Washington state. They have four sons, four daughters-in-law, five grandsons, two granddaughters and a precocious Papillon named Anouk.
