Linda always treated writing as a past-time until she was forced to gather and pack all her stories and scribbling in one place. What resulted was a super-sized box filled with physical evidence of her obsession with the written word. Linda reliably would be found with her nose deep in her favorite Science Fiction/Fantasy novel or writing one of her own. Her writing spark was first ignited at age eight during the reading of her first epic fantasy. She was extremely disappointed in the author who glossed over a romantic arc between two secondary characters and began scribbling her own rendition. The resulting fan fiction
tragically survives packed safely away never to see the light of day again.
A native Texan, Linda was born and raised in San Antonio and currently lives in Grand Prairie.
Linda has a rather eclectic work history ranging from housekeeper, pet shop employee, alarm monitor, accountant, nutrition specialist, volunteering at a crisis hotline, and recently just ended a 5-year gig as a lane performer with a Renaissance Festival.
In addition to her full-time job as a business analyst, Linda is a frustratingly moderate bowler and a yearly participant in both the USBC State Women’s, and USBC Women’s National Championships. She has earned several awards in bowling, in public speaking with Toastmasters, and received a coveted Character of the Day mug and Best Returning Character as her Renaissance Festival character, Juliana Reichardt!, Baroness von Reutlingen.
When she’s not performing, writing, or bowling, she can be found knitting, or even online playing MMORPG’s with her very own Cowboy and four very spoiled felines between them.
