As former owner/operator of WHALEN'S COUNTRY CHILDCARE, Linda draws on her experiences with children for her passion...writing and illustrating. Her first book is an adult book of inspiration...THE VALLEY OF CHILDHOOD. As much of her life is spent caring for children, her focus shifted to children's books. Even so, she still gives talks on her favorite moto: Reclaim God's joy. Linda is very family orientated as well as being a religious education teacher, and spiritual leader in her community. While all these are important aspects of Linda's life, at the core of her being she holds dear the awe of wonder seen in the eyes of a child and hopes she will forever be inspired by the sight. Her writing has been described as insightful, inspiring, humorous, and unique.
