About LCC

“The love of books has been a constant in my life, inspiring me to dream and create.” Linda has always been passionate about reading and began writing poetry early on in high school.

A graduate of Marietta College and The Graduate School of Banking, Louisiana State University, a banking career, two successful entrepreneur businesses later, Linda finally began following her lifelong dream of writing children’s books. As co-owner of a juvenile manufacturing company for 17 years, Linda was instrumental in the design and creation of artwork, furniture and bedding for babies and toddlers. This creative practice and experience helped expand and strengthen her desire to write, educate, and inspire children to develop a love of books, knowledge and wondrous stories.

Linda has found her love in non-fiction picture books and won second place in that category at SCBWI Florida Regional Risking Kite Competition, January 2017. She is happiest digging into the research and finding hidden nuggets to write about.

Linda’s time is shared between Florida and Idaho, beaches and mountains, biking, hiking, fly fishing and always with her best friend and companion, Jane Austen, a yellow lab.

"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."
-T.S. Eliot
