As an author and screenplay writer, 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. With that mission in mind, she has taken great measures to assure that while weaving her tales, using fictional characters, the events that enrich the story lines are based on countless hours of painstaking research.
What matters to Linda, is that she will be able to capture the reader's imagination, while taking their mind on a holiday -- a holiday where the reader 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 and 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.
Linda's sincere wish is that you enjoy reading her stories as much as she has enjoyed writing them.
Currently, Linda's completed projects are:
"Excursion of Life" - a personal glimpse at how spiritual enlightenment has affected Linda’s life and those she loves.
