Linda B Myers ~ Author
Linda won her first creative contest in the sixth grade for her Clean Up Fix Up Paint Up Week poster. It involved monkeys washing spots off a giraffe, but she doesn't remember what it said. She woud like to think her words have more staying power these days.
Linda's first book was nonfiction published decades ago by Outdoor World. From this experience, she learned how little an author can make. So she turned to marketing for many years. Eventually, she traded in snow boots for rain boots and moved from Chicago to Port Angeles, WA.
Linda's novels are general fiction and mysteries set in the Pacific Northwest. Fun House Chronicles introduces the characters that appear in her PI Bear Jacobs mystery series in which a tough and clever group of seniors takes on dark crime with a large dose of humor. Her fantasy, The Slightly Altered History of Cascadia, is about the gods fixing up what they've screwed up when they created humans.
Linda is a founder of Olympic Peninsula Authors, with the goal to promote the high quality of local authors. She also writes a monthly column (first Wednesday of the month) in the Sequim Gazette called From the Back Nine. It's an often-snarky view back on the aging process. Think Andy Rooney if he was a she!
