About this author

Writer/artist living in small town Michigan. I am a woman, paddler, rebel wannabe, constant reader, recovering wine snob, primary caregiver, and anarchist emeritus.

When I was young, I wanted to be an alien. My brothers think I succeeded.

The first book I could read by myself was "The Cat in the Hat Comes Back." The next book I remember reading was Taylor Caldwell's "Dear and Glorious Physician."

By second grade, I had the thickest glasses in my family. Still do. I read by lamp light, moonlight, flashlight, candlelight and the pilot light in the furnace. Books are as important to my survival as water and dark chocolate.


September 1-15, 2015 will be a Directed by Women Global Viewing Party, celebrating the voluminous work of women directors from 1896 onward. We invite your organization to appreciate the contribution of women directors, the history of the gender to the development of film and to just have a bloomin' good time watching movies directed by women, and encouraging others to do the same.

“Life lessons cannot be applied topically.”
Linda Robinson

“We email, teleconference, webinar, but we are not in the room with the people. It is a false connectedness - artificial team-building. It's like eating the menu instead of the food.”
Linda Robinson, Chantepleure

“I must catch up to the others, for I am their leader.”
Linda Robinson, Chantepleure

“Crazy is a place," said Janos. "You go, you come back.”
Carol O'Connell, Crime School

“I would suggest that you remember she is old because some of her enemies are dead.”
C.J. Cherryh, Inheritor

“If you're a writer, the answer to everything is yes.”
Nikki Giovanni

“Because if you didn’t speak your truth, there was always something that would speak it for you that much louder.”
Pat Cadigan, Synners

“It has taken me a very long time, a very long time to give myself permission to fly and breathe fire.”

Yes. Out of allthe Booker Prize candidates that one seemed to me the most interesting, but I wanted to start with an earlier book. Will let you know about Rain.

Linda Robinson I hope you enjoy the experience. I just read Garden of Evening Mists, too. Such pain and beauty is profound.


Kalliope Thank you for your Friends request Linda. It seems we share many friends already.
