Linda attended the Southampton Writer's Workshop on a full scholarship where she studied with Amy Hempel. Agented by Josh Getzler of Hannigan Salky Getzler, Linda is a novelist who knows no boundaries. From her first novel, Not Waving, Drowning--an epic story of three unconventional women that spans a hundred years and features both the poetry pf Stevie Smith and the little known truth behind the beloved Waving Girl of Savannah, to her popular legal thriller novella, SImple Intent, to the quirky, contemporary noir-esque detective story, 3 Women Walk Into a Bar, to her current project: a mystery series introducing the unstoppable Jojo Boudreaux, female trucker. Because there's more to truck driving that shifting gears and hauling freight. As if that wasn't enough to keep her busy, in her free time, Linda ventures into non-fiction traveling the country to interview and photograph subjects for a photo essay book on the modern truck driver and their rig.
