Bio

Lynn Vincent RecordingLynn Vincent is the #1 New York Times best-selling writer of eleven nonfiction books with more than 16 million copies in print, Executive Editor of WORLD Magazine, and mother of the two handsomest, most brilliant sons in the universe.  

She is also the investigator and host of Lawless, a true crime podcast that examines a frightening fact of American life: That not every crime is against the law. Lawless is produced in collaboration with WORLD Radio, a division of World News Group.

Lynn’s latest book is INDIANAPOLIS: The True Story of the Worst Sea Disaster in U.S. Navy History and the Fifty-Year Fight to Exonerate an Innocent Man (Simon and Schuster 2018.) Written with National Geographic historian Sara Vladic, the book was an instant New York Times bestseller and was chosen as one of the Best of 2018 by Barnes and Noble, Kirkus Reviews, Military Times, Amazon, and NPR.

Among Lynn’s other bestselling books are Same Kind of Different as Me (with Ron Hall and Denver Moore) and Heaven is for Real (with Todd Burpo.) Both were released as major motion pictures.

While on active duty with the U.S. Navy, Lynn served during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Her military experience proved critical in writing Dog Company: A True Story of American Soldiers Abandoned by Their High Command (Center Street Books.) Written with former 101st Airborne infantry commander Captain Roger T. Hill, Dog Company released in April 2017.

A veteran journalist, Lynn’s investigative pieces have been cited before Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court. She has been profiled in major media outlets, including Newsweek and The New Yorker.

Lynn lives in the mountains east of San Diego with Danny, her husband of 33 years, and three very personable (and hungry) Labrador retrievers.
