Coconut oil is nearly a super hero in my book. I’ve read so much about coconut oil I have to share what I’ve learned with you.

Substitute coconut oil for vegetable oil in cooking. Coconut oil has many uses other than cooking, including cosmetic uses. It has major benefits when used in both ways.
Coconut oil is edible and derived from wick, meat and milk of coconut palm fruit. The oil is a white solid that melts at warmer temperatures to a clear liquid. Refined versions have no scent. Unrefined varieties have a distinct coconut aroma. When used in cooking, it does not affect the flavor of food.

Love is a mystery to be explored! Enjoy the ride.
I write as Lynda Rees, I write what I loved to read–romance with a hint of mystery being screwed up by history, so romantic fiction with a bit of mystery and history. I'm interested in history of the mob-especially its influence in my home state of Kentucky; the wild west; Alaska, horse racing, riding and equestrian breeding. I'm fascinated how history affects current-day and frames our lives.
The hero of my life story, my incredible husband Mike, and our family of critters thrive on a Kentucky horse farm. He's a saint, nurturing partner and my best supporter. I am a free spirited adventurer and a fun loving gal, with workaholic tendencies. Whatever crazy adventure I conger up, he is by my side.
I have many faces, adept at juggling multiple priorities. I am a driven story teller, a dreamer, whose dreams come true. I've written blessings into my life since I learned to read at my grandpa's side at the age of five. Stories continual thread throughout every aspect of my life.
I nurtured two amazing people to become phenomenal adults, my son Michael and daughter Brandy. I am working the same magic spell on my grandchildren, Harley, Hunter and E. J. Harley is co-author of my children's middle-grade books.
I dreamed of an incredible man to share my life; two blonde, blue-eyed babies and a horse farm in Kentucky filled with family, fun, animals and laughter.
A diverse background brings rare perspective and insight, which plays out in my work. Born in splendor of the Appalachian Mountains, the daughter of a coal miner and part Cherokee Indian, I grew up in Northern Kentucky when the Mob reigned supreme in Newport, Kentucky, and the city prospered as a mecca for gambling, prostitution and sin.
My father instilled in me, a strong work ethic and capability to achieve my goals.
Writing has brought me extraordinary experiences, opened worldwide doors and taken me to exotic locations I never dreamed to set foot in. Traveling the world, visiting exotic places and enjoying wonderful cultures flavors my words.
I'm a member of Romance Writers of American, PRO; Association of Writers and Writing Programs; North Texas Romance Writers of America; Mid-America Romance Writers; Kiss of Death Writers; From The Heart Romance Writers and American Writers and Artists, Inc.
Writing romance is my passion. I have been writing published in various magazines, newspapers, author a newsletter, have many adult and children's novels published. In 2020, my plans are to publish several self-help books and even more novels. My work is in eBook, print and audio book. My works are in the process of being translated so in 2020 they will be available in German, Italian, French and Spanish.
So many stories swirl in my head at any given time, I drift off to sleep each night, as they brand themselves into my subconscious, eager to find their way onto written pages.
I hope you find something that speak so your heart!
Time for Romance!
Love is a dangerous mystery. Enjoy the Ride!
