Her e-book, Simple Intent, a legal thriller novella based on a true story from 1970′s Philadelphia, is sold internationally and continues to receive rave reviews, with plans to bring this book into print format by winter of 2014.
Her first novel, Not Waving, Drowning can be found wherever books are sold. A sweeping generational novel set in the south that revolves around three women- one of them is the mysterious, heroic Waving Girl of Savannah- this book explores how love can’t be judged, the past can’t be rewritten, and not everyone can be saved.
Agented by Josh Getzler of Hannigan, Salky, Getzler, she’s excited about entering genre fiction with Grand Theft Cargo, a mystery featuring Jojo Boudreaux, a sassy, tenacious trucker with the mouth of a sailor and the heart… of a truck driver. Linda is currently working on book two in the series.
Additional projects include Linda’s venture into non-fiction for the first time:a photo essay book on the modern truck driver, written in a collaboration with photographer Avital Aronowitz, and her contemporary noir novel, 3 Women Walk into a Bar, a detective story with an Internet twist, that introduces Bill Tedesco, PI, a former exotic dancer and karaoke star.
