About the author…

I used to think that my life story was so outrageous and absurd that people would clamor to Barnes and Noble to pick up a hardcover copy of my memoir.  I even wrote a manuscript and sent query letters out to thirty agents. Two of them actually wrote me very nice letters with lots of advice. I considered this a success.

The idea for a memoir wasn’t totally due to self-absorption. I have always believed that if I would have met someone earlier in my life, who had gone through the same sort of darkness, and had come out on the other side, intact no less, I may not have spent so much time in that terrible place. Maybe I wouldn’t have spent twenty years of my life battling my way back to emotional freedom.

Maybe, just maybe, I could have done it in, say, three!

I’m a psychotherapist now, and I work with adolescents and children who have been abused, neglected, abandoned. When I hear their stories, I don’t think mine is all that, well…bad. But hey…on the off chance there’s someone out there who needs a little hope…I’m your gal. There’s not a whole lot of experiences out there I haven’t had. Of course, I like to say, it’s not over ’till it’s over. But I’m ready for anything…

  2. Linda,
    Your writing is terrific! I kept reading post after post – now it’s after 10 pm and I’ve got to get ready for tomorrow.
    You absolutely should use one of those internet services that will edit your blog posts into a book and self publish.
    Terrific, terrific, terrific.
    I’m so glad you commented on my blog so I found you!

    When we share our thoughts, problems with others we seek better solutions, Sharing is CARING

    • Hello there. Sharing is caring! When my story is done (as well as my life) I hope I have reached back and helped some thrive regardless of the hard stuff. We all experience it. Sometimes it’s hard to find our way out when we don’t have others who have gone before us.

  6. I’ve started reading your blog and will be back for more. Thanks, Linda!
