Lynda Zussman, teacher, educator and writer, wrote two screenplays in the 90's,
"Panic" and "Papa Rose". As a Special Education educator
to children and young adults, she guided others by studying and developing her own spirituality. Nothing prepared her for
the death of her 26-year-old daughter, but by writing "Throw Me the Rope" she has embraced
courage, hope and faith through her daughter's life lessons and spiritual growth. Zussman lives in Newport Beach, California
with her husband and dogs, Lexi and Cowboy.
