About Me

I'm a freelance and a fiction writer: Flash fiction, short stories, novels. I spent five years as a newspaper reporter, but left that career when I reached for a bigger paycheck. The bigger paycheck was nice, but my heart belongs to writing, so I'm back again.

Why do you write?

I wish I could answer this question, but I find when I think about it too much, I stop writing.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Philip Roth: American Pastoral, The Human Stain, Sabbath's Theater
Jane Smiley: A Thousand Acres, Julia Glass: Three Junes

Nice to have you with us.

Oh, and didn't you love Three Junes?

And where are you living now? I'm actually in Reisterstown...

Hey girl, just got an invite last nite, so figuring out this place. There's gazillions of folks here. Yeah, it IS intimidating -- and no, I haven't posted here, I'm in semi-reclusion trying to get to The End on a novel. May throw up a poem, but trying to figure out if that makes it a pub or not. Ditto on #fridayflash -- miss the comraderie, the positive feedback, the hits to my blog.

Hope you hang here more... Peace, Linda
