Linda M. Au shares her home in western Pennsylvania with two guinea pigs and her eternally patient husband, Wayne Parker. She and Wayne share six grown children between them. Plus, the flotsam and jetsam that come with a blended family.
Linda's been a proofreader and typesetter for more than twenty years. With HEAD IN THE SAND and FORK IN THE ROAD, she climbed over the proverbial publishing desk to give voice to all the stupid things that happen to her. Many of the pieces in HEAD IN THE SAND have won awards in various humor contests.
FORK IN THE ROAD is in print because stupid stuff kept happening, and she kept writing it all down.
Linda's fiction is now becoming available as well. THE SCARLET LETTER OPENER, a cozy mystery, is her first published novel, with many more novels in different fictional worlds to follow. Her more somber women's fiction, GRAY AREA, is also available in paperback and Kindle formats.
When she's not writing, Linda is a writing coach for Write At Home, the author liaison for the Beaver County BookFest in Pennsylvania, vice president of the board of education and publication for the Reformed Presbyterian Church, and a board member for the St. Davids Christian Writers' Association. You know... more stuff she doesn't really get paid for.
You can read Linda's stray thoughts on writing and publishing at www.lindamaubooks.com, or follow her on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. Or, you know, not. No pressure.
