    (May 28, 1947- )
    Birth name is Lynn Ridgeway
    First female to win the Reuben Award for print cartooning
    Creator of the comic strip 'For Better or For Worse'
    Since she loosely based 'For Better' on her own family, her children were the targets of teasing.
    She decided to end 'For Better' six years in advance.
    She was anorexic.
    Some who use the newspaper comic section for escapism may find her strip too heavy.
    She said, 'I was a fighter. I was angry. I wanted to fight, and I wanted to hurt people.'
    She was physically abused by her mother.
    Her first husband left her after their son was born.
    She was close friends with Charles Schulz.
    She created one of the few 'real-time' comic strips (the characters age along with the strip).
    She is one of the very few Canadian (and female) comic strip artists who are popular in the U.S.
    She is not afraid of tackling controversial topics in her cartoon.
    Many newspapers dropped her strip when she introduced a homosexual character.
