Linda M. has lived many lives in one, having grown up in a dysfunctional family and lived to tell about it.

She married young, merely 2 weeks after high school graduation, and had three kids under 5 by her 23rd birthday.

She homeschooled her kids and was a pastor's wife for 10 years. During that time, she taught women's classes and worked as a church secretary. It was during this time she authored a book and accompanying course that the church still uses to this day.

Her next adventure was in healthcare, where she worked in a nursing home, hospital, home health, and an assisted living home. Her positions were varied and included certified nursing assistant, staff development coordinator, shift supervisor, and medical records clerk. These positions afforded her ample opportunity to polish her writing skills and excel in the fine art of communicative writing.

Her husband had a stroke at an early age, so she eventually added caregiver to her list of occupations. To spend more time at home, she did private childcare for several families, many of whom went on to become close personal friends.

Today, Linda and her husband are mostly retired. She spends her days traveling to visit her grandchildren and writing for private clients.
