Linda’s Story
Linda was born and raised in the Windy City, an apt metaphor for her chatty personality.  From the time she could talk, she enjoyed telling tall tales.  She often entertained her younger siblings and her classmates, spinning all kinds of yarns.  Her favorite TV shows growing up were “The Twilight Zone” and “The Outer Limits.”

When Linda was twelve, she pecked out her first whimsical novel on a typewriter.  In high school, she composed maudlin poems and amusing stories.  Then she spent four years penning love letters to her husband in the Navy.  It wasn’t until Linda was twenty-five that she wrote her next book, a science-fiction love story.

After writing for many years, she hopped on the dizzying merry-go-round of trying to market her work.   During this time, Linda and her husband moved from Chicago to the Mile High City—another apt metaphor, since her head was always in the clouds.  She taught creative writing classes at a community college and formed a writers’ group.  Linda worked with a literary agent and won several short story contests, once placing 33rd in the top 100 at Writer’s Digest.

Her e-books, available on Amazon, are contemporary romances with a paranormal twist. The stories revolve around families, friends, and a host of life issues, tempered with sympathy, humor, and a touch of faith.  She believes in love at first sight and “happily ever after.”

You can find Linda all across social media, trying not to make a nuisance of herself.  Not to mention, back in her hometown of Chicago, where her family can no longer escape her!
