Linda has a special love for Young Adult literature, both as a reader and a writer for teens and 'tweens. Drawing on her travels through Asia, Europe, Australia, Hawaii and Indonesia, her books feature authentic touches and far-away locales.

While living in Japan, Linda pinch-hit as a substitute teacher at the American School In Japan and served as the Tokyo Regional Advisor for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. She has visited schools around the United States and overseas and she has been on the faculty and presented to writers' workshops both at home and abroad.
