Linda Daly--Author/Screenwriter/Publisher. Creating a holiday for the mind.


Background Information

 

Linda Daly is living her dream! A decade or so ago, Daly did what many dare to imagine, but few have the guts to actually do. She stepped back, took a long look at her life and then inhaled deeply as she plunged headfirst into a writing career.

A venture in which she had no practical training in-- no creative writing classes, no seminars or workshops under her belt on how to be a writer, no insider connections to the book publishing world to give her an edge.  All she had was determination, a dream and a background in Printing, as the Sales Director for a midsized printing company located in LA .

Relying on her past, her passion, and faith that she could do this,  Daly followed her heart and went after her dreams. And so began Daly’s writing career. Eventually her story came to life on paper, not as one story as she had thought,  but as two novels, set during the same time, running simutanisly,  "Virtuous Dove and Rebel Dove".

“It’s funny how your dreams evolve…When I began writing, I had an idea for a little story…” the blonde, green-eyed native Michigander pauses to hold up her thumb and index finger a fraction of an inch apart.

“And now, that little story has progressed into an epic series titled, “Doves Collect”  that will eventually span over a century.

In addition,  her writing career evolved into writing mysteries, the first, “Sea of Lies” is published, and she has completed several screenplays. And if that wasn’t gratifying enough, Daly is now a publisher too! CEO of  LSP Digital. Daly is proud to represent 31 unique books from various authors who she claims needed someone to believe in their dreams too.”

“And who says dreams don’t come true? Mine sure have -- 7 wonderful children, 13 amazing grandchildren, a rewarding career in writing, and now I’m able to assist others by making their dreams come true. Now how can it possibly get better than this?”

Daly’s eyes sparkle summarizing her writing career to date, stating, “I haven’t a clue what the universe has in store for me tomorrow, but I can tell you this much for certain; whatever it is, I’m truly a blessed woman to be able to live my dream!”

Accomplishments

Linda Daly – wife, mother of seven, grandmother, founder and CEO of LSP Digital , retired V.P. of ‘Barefoot Productions’, (local theatre group, Plymouth MI) believes firmly that all things are possible with faith, determination, and, above all - imagination.

Now, in her early 60's, Linda continues her quest and passion for life by working on several manuscripts and screenplays; holding on to her beliefs that without the guidance and direction from above, none of this would be possible.

Completed projects are:
Gift Book
• "The Gift, A Journey of Acceptance" - a personal glimpse at how spiritual enlightenment has affected Linda’s life and those that she loves.
Self Help - Aspiring Writers Guide - While hosting a weekly chat for LSP Digital’s
stable of authors and various other writers,
Linda handed out weekly assignments. Those
assignments are now the, “Aspiring Writers
Guide.”

The Chat was called, "Marketing Your Wares".
and my goal was for everyone to build a solid
foundation for their project.

As crucial as it is to market your work, no
marketing campaign will replace good writing
techniques. Every writer while perfecting
their craft must not only polish their work but
realize that without creating a buzz you might
as well just consider your writing a lovely
hobby.

Additional Information

Who is Linda Daly? Born on my mother’s twentieth birthday, I was an active baby, crawling by three months and walking by six months. Grammy--a soft- spoken, well educated immigrant, forced to work in the factory to help support her children--was also a visionary and had often told me I was full of life because I was like a butterfly fluttering about to experience everything I possibly could. Poor Mama, though she had her hands full, when at eighteen-months this butterfly had her wings crimped when I accidentally mistook Drain-o as candy and swallowed the lethal blue crystals. Having a full recovery, which some described as a miracle, with no ill-effects, I grew up being told that our Heavenly Father, the power of prayer, and one’s own ability to believe, could make it so. One of those moments when all seemed lost, I turned on the television. By ‘chance’, (I prefer to view this as a sign) I became interested in a program on Oprah. The message was clear, “Be your best self”. From that day to this, I’ve made a conscious effort at doing just that. More importantly, I not only listened with my ears, I began to listen with my heart and looked for signs to guide me on this wondrous journey. Much to my delight, signs came from everywhere. The most profound was on January, 9th, 1997. That night I was scurrying around the kitchen after working a full day at my job (as Print Coordinator for a large bank in MI) trying to prepare a meal for my family and eldest son--a fireman from Virginia Beach who was coming home for a visit. The phone rang. It was my sister. In one fleeting second, my world came to a screeching halt. The plane that my son was to be on had just crashed. Worse, the news was reporting there were no survivors. The next several minutes were filled with anguish and heart-stopping fear until I heard my son’s voice on the phone. This memorable, blessed moment came about because one man, whom I lovingly refer to as an earth angel from the airlines, was relentless in finding my son who was still on the passenger list, but could not be verified if he had checked in before take off. This amazing man was able to track my son down in Atlanta as he was coming off a plane that had been diverted after flight 3272 went down. Fast forward several months later when I ‘happened upon’ ( another HUGE sign) a letter from a woman named Joy who had asked for help from viewers of an angel-site. The letter caught my attention at once; you see, Joy was asking help from a printer to print off flyers that would assist those firemen that had been the first to respond to flight 3272. I did what anyone would do -- I wrote and offered whatever help I could. After all, wasn’t I a printer by trade and had been blessed to still have my beloved son the fireman with us? From the moment I heard back from Raphaele, the woman that ran the Question and Answer section offered on that angel site, then meeting Joy, I knew without question my path had taken a new direction. And so began my wondrous journey that has continued on through today - always evolving. This road I now walk is of my choosing. And I feel honored and blessed to have learned the true meaning of being ‘my best self’. For me, that means assisting other storytellers. Precisely why today, I sincerely believe that all the experiences of my life, from birth on, has led me to this particular place and time. As an author, I am proud to have released books 2 & 3 in the Doves Collect series through LSP Digital. Rebel Dove and Doves Migration. And now with my favorite time of the year approaching, I'm looking forward to all of our fall releases, including Sea of Lies due to be released in Novemeber 2008.

Become Acquainted with Linda Daly
As an author, screenwriter and now publisher, Linda believes no matter the genre or the field of entertainment, the story should be as true to the documented facts of the period depicted as possible. While weaving her tales, her mission is to capture the audience's imagination using fictional characters around actual events to enrich the story, while taking their minds on a holiday -- A holiday where the readers will be swept away from the hustle and bustle of their day-to-day routine, identifying with the characters' trials and tribulations and come to think of them as their friends; some they will cheer on, others sympathize with, and some they will love to hate. Either way, they will be missed when coming to the final chapter or the credits roll.
