"Whether poems, family stories, essays, or resumes, it seems I've always been writing something! It wasn't until I moved to Houston five years ago, however, that I was able to focus on structuring a novel. Having LOVE, MONEY AND AMANDA SHAW accepted by Harlequin Superromance is a dream come true."
Linda admits that she's spent almost as much time writing for her own enjoyment as she's spent in her full-time professional life. The personal memoirs she's written, featuring her immediate world of family, have also given immense pleasure to those she loves—pleasure marked by laughter and tears.
Currently, as the Director of Adult Education with a non- profit community service agency, she enlists the support of her husband, Michael, to help balance her time and energy.
"What this really means is that we eat whatever we can scrounge up—you can put anything on a bagel—and clean the house at some point during the week for one frantic hour. Mike can handle that vacuum like a pro."
Linda's career in adult education has enriched her own life immensely. "Teachers always learn more from their students than the other way around." She's seen that when individuals from a variety of cultures, backgrounds, and languages come together for the single purpose of improving their lives, it reinforces how people are basically the same the world over. It's not surprising that one of the books she's working on now involves a GED instructor and a high school dropout.
"The wonderful part about writing for Superromance is the depth and breadth of the story lines and characters. I love the variety of tone and setting, the subplots, and unique secondary characters. I'm also intrigued by the challenging careers that our heroines and heroes have. The books are big enough to reveal the characters' growth as they make the joyous discovery that love is what it's all about."
Linda's waiting for her three grown sons—all single, bright, and gorgeous—to make the same discovery. She hopes that if she writes enough romances, they'll take the hint!
