A Boston native, Linda lives in Southern California with her husband and two daughters.
After graduating Syracuse University with a degree in journalism and political science, Linda moved from her hometown of Brookline, MA to Los Angeles where she was hired at Petersen Publishing’s Hunting, Fishing and ‘TEEN Magazines as an editorial and promotions assistant. It was during that time when she wrote her first young-adult novel, Picture Perfect (Lunchbox Press, published in 2001) and began writing children’s fiction.
Linda went on to work for Miss Universe, Inc. (owned and operated by Madison Square Garden), marketing the MISS USA, Miss Universe and MISS TEEN USA live, CBS television broadcasts. She was later hired as Assistant Marketing Director for KABC TalkRadio in Los Angeles, generating publicity for TalkRadio, ESPN and KLOS radio stations (ABC Radio Group).
Feeling the pull to be at home with her kids, Linda now freelances for McIntyre in the Morning at KABC TalkRadio and also writes for the Thousand Oaks Acorn Newspaper. She is a group leader at Bible Study Fellowship and is allowing God to shape her identity as He sees fit.
Having struggled with the transition from fulltime career to motherhood, Linda decided to write a book addressing God’s role in re-establishing a woman’s identity which she is now blogging and speaking about at local MOPS groups. You can find daily encouragements on her facebook page, Shaping Your Idenity in Motherhood as well as at Moms Together https://www.facebook.com/MomsTogether/.
