Get to know Linda
Linda is the author of Love, Laughter, and Tears: Poems for all of life. This book took more than 30 years to write. That means she culled thoughts from decades of journal writing, edited, and rearranged about 70 poems. If she had not written down her thoughts, there would be no book. For the past 10 years, she has been involved with Toastmasters International, and uses journal entries to help her craft many speeches.
She is a high school English teacher, mother of four adult children, mother-in-law to two sons-in-law, and grandmother of four. Her husband is an optometrist, and appreciates the chance to assess people’s eye health and visual acuity. Linda loves another kind of “eye health” – helping people to see life from God’s perspective.
