Lynne Mitchener// Writer
LYNNE MITCHENER has been married to Bob for 41 years and they have three adult children and two grandchildren. They currently live in Coatesville, managing a wonderful Retreat centre, Whakata. They have spent twenty years on Great Barrier Island, living and working at Orama Oasis and during the last eight years were both involved in writing the Orama newsletter two or three times each year. Last year Lynne and Bob published Orama Reflections: Our story, our place, our people which is a 128 page pictorial coffee table book, with anecdotes and short stories depicting the rich and interesting history of Orama. They lived in Riverhead in the late 90’s running The Robert Mitchener Gallery and gift shop for seven years. Lynne has been dabbling in writing all her life, with a few published magazine articles. She is hoping to be more intentional with her writing in her latter years.
