Linda writes Teen/YA Contemporary and Fantasy. She is a RWA member since 2012


Background Information

 

While in high school, Linda discovered her love for reading fantasy. It all began with the Tolkien Hobbit series. From there she found Ann McCaffrey's Dragon Riders of Pern. After that she couldn't stop reading fantasy.

After high school she moved from Massachusetts, where she grew up, to New Hampshire. That is where she raised her two now grown children. Her daughter blessed her with a granddaughter three years ago. These two children brought issues in to her life while they were in their teens, sparking her to begin writing Teen Contemporary. This was how the Wings from Ashes series came about.

But her love for fantasy is still strong, leading to her desire to write her fantasy series. Orgarlan Saga is her escape from reality series. She has had a lot of fun writing it too.

When Linda isn't writing, she likes being in her garden. She is also a knitter, crocheter, and a reader. The rest of her time is spent with her dog Julie, two cats - Sam and Gracie, and her pet laying hens.

She still lives in Southern New Hampshire.

Additional Information

THE STORY BEHIND THE BOOK ROAD SALT Linda was watching the news last summer when she saw her son's counselor speaking about the dangers of a designer drug that was hitting our streets. She wanted everyone to know how dangerous Bath Salts was. This gave Linda the idea to write Road Salt. While this book is completely fictional, the main idea of the teens taking the road trip south was sparked by an incident that happened in her daugter's life several years ago. Giving the reason why her daughter said, "Good book, but bad memories."
