Lynda Edwards


Lynda spent the first part of her working life teaching EFL to international students before going on to becoming involved in teacher training. She had always written materials for her students and was thrilled when the opportunity arose to start writing for publication. Since then she has gone on to write several course books for students from A2 level through to C1 as well as skills books, resource books, work books, teacher’s books and tests. She is also the author of many readers at A1/A2/B1 level – both adaptations and original stories (one currently short-listed for an REF award). While still a teacher Lynda became an examiner for the Cambridge ESOL Upper Main Suite oral exams and then started to write for the exams themselves. She is currently an item writer for ten Cambridge ESOL examinations including FCE/CAE/CPE/ILEC and TKT. When she is not writing Lynda enjoys reading and walking her dog Bailey in the New Forest.
