Linda’s degree from UW-Oshkosh is in art education, and she taught part time while also working for ten years as a reporter, columnist and cartoonist for The Week, a county newspaper based in Delavan, Wisconsin. She won several first-place national awards from the National Newspaper Association for best feature stories, and additional state awards from organizations such as the Wisconsin Donor Network, Wisconsin Council on Developmental Disabilities, and Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Her editorial cartoons were featured in “Best Editorial Cartoons 1991, 1992, and 1993.” illustrates her own books. She has canvassed Wis. and Michigan looking for the strange and offbeat, from outsider artists and giant roadside statues to local cemetery lore, eccentric people and history, to ghost stories and unidentified creatures and UFO’s. She put over 5,000 miles on her “weirdmobile” and found enough strangeness to fill both Weird Michigan and Weird Wisconsin for Barnes & Noble in 2006, and the sequels, Strange Michigan and Strange Wisconsin for Trails Books.

I am represented by the amazing Jim McCarthy of Dystel and Goderich Literary Agency. Watch for several other projects including a fantasy series with the first book TBA soon.

And then there is my artist hat, for which I am represented by http://www.artfactoryillustrators.com/ in Elm Grove, Wisconsin.I have illustrated many of my own books.
