Lyon wrote under the pen name Florida Frenz and published her book with the children’s book company, Creston Books. Since then, she has held a variety of positions in the public and nongovernmental organization sectors that look at how the findings of policy research can be conveyed clearly to mobilize positive change, focusing primarily on affordable housing, healthcare, and education.
