I LOVE speaking on faith and fiction!

Here I am during a visit with Kim Merida's book club in Wake Forest, NC. These ladies know how to have a good time!

If you're looking for a speaker for a library event, Rotary or Ruritan meeting, a women's ministry event, writers' group or your book club, please contact me! 

Here are some sample speaking topics:

Once Upon a Crime–forensics and fiction. Get the inside scoop on the forensics behind many of our favorite stories. How Sherlock broke the ice, and OJ pushed the genre from “whodunit” to “howdunit.”

Five Smooth Stones–From childhood trauma to a family member’s cancer, I've experienced tough times. Who hasn't? Here are five secrets I've discovered to persevering with joy.

The Storied Life–What it’s like to be a writer. Where do the ideas come from? What’s the process of wrestling down a story? Gathering quotes and stories from the lives of Madeline L’Engle, Anne Lamott, Mary Higgins Clark, and others, Linda pulls back the curtain on a writer’s life.

For Writers:

The Key to Perseverance

When Scene Becomes a Character

Creating Tension that Tightens the Gut

Just Write!
