Esther Lynn, circa 1940, is a Chicago-native born into a show business family. Her father and grandfather owned vaudeville houses around the near-North side of the Windy City. With the demise of vaudeville, the facilities evolved into neighborhood movie theaters. She grew up in Tucson, living there from 1946 to 1966, existed in the Los Angeles-area for a decade, and has called Las Vegas home since 1976. She has owned art galleries, both in Southern California and in Southern Nevada and, along with her daughter, operated a maternity boutique in Las Vegas. Esther has made the majority of her livelihood as a writer and editor, primarily on the subject of entertainment and entertainers. In Las Vegas she has done publicity for numerous performers and had regular bylines in many publications including the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Las Vegas Sun, and Whatís On magazine. For three years, she was the editor of Dirt Alert (now known as Callback). Esther currently contributes articles to New York-based Cabaret Scenes magazine and does occasional freelance work for numerous publications. The highlight of Estherís career as a writer was being asked to supply the liner notes for the video, Frankie Laine: Live at The Orleans, November 1999. She has one former husband, three adult children and three rapidly growing grandsons.
