Living in the scenic mountains of North Carolina in the summers and the beautiful beaches of northwest Florida in the winter, Linda finds it easy to write and is constantly inspired. The dream for this book occurred about ten years ago. She and her husband treasured their time in Abaco, Bahamas. The dogs in the story are real as are some of the events and people, but Linda mostly created how she felt they would react to life.
Linda and her husband are both retired. They have one son and one grandson. Between visits to Texas to visit them and hours spent in the garden, Linda finds that writing fills a creative need. Lately she has become involved in family genealogy, which is also most rewarding to her.(2013, hardback, 36 pages)
