Audry Louise (McKenna) Lynch has had a career in teaching, journalism, and guidance counseling. Daughter of Joseph George McKenna, M.Ed., Harvard, 1933, and Helen E. McKenna, Lynch was born on July 18, 1933 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and educated at Marycliff Academy (Winchester, Massachusetts), 1946-1951, Radcliffe, 1951-1955 (B.A. in government), Boston University, 1963-1967, and the University of San Francisco (Ph.D., 1983, in educational psychology). Lynch married Gregory R. Lynch, now president of Memron, Inc. (Santa Clara, California), in September 1956; their three children are Stephanie, Roberta, and Gregory, Jr. Lynch has been a high school teacher in Buffalo, New York, and a student counselor in elementary schools in the Boston area and San Jose, California. Her career as a writer began in 1956 at the Berkshire Evening Eagle; she has since published feature articles in the Boston Irish News, Woburn Daily Times, Boston Globe, Yankee Magazine, and Catholic Digest, among others, and her first article on guidance counseling in New Era magazine (1973). She resides with her husband in Saratoga, California.
