About this author

Linda Poitevin lives just outside Canada’s capital, Ottawa, with her husband, the youngest of three daughters, one very large husky/shepherd/Great Dane-cross dog, two cats, a rabbit, and a bearded dragon lizard. Turned down in her pursuit of a police career after a faulty height measurement, Linda vicariously lives out her dream of being a cop through her characters. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found in her garden in the summer, hugging the fireplace in the winter, or walking her dog along the river in any season.

Find her on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/LindaPoitevin and on Wattpad at http://www.wattpad.com/user/LindaPoit...

As much as I may whine and grump about a work-in-progress at around thehalfway to two-thirds mark inmy first draft of a book, over time I’ve discovered there’s a far more difficult part to write: the end. Not just the actual words, but the whole ending. The climax followed by the resolution. The wrapping up … Read More

Topics Mentioning This Author

China Miéville
“A trap is only a trap if you don't know about it. If you know about it, it's a challenge.”
China Miéville, King Rat

“Real confidence has a realistic view of itself. It knows what it is capable of and not capable of. Real confidence does not need to overcompensate for anything, it doesn’t have to try harder to be more than what it already is. Real confidence does not beat itself up when it makes a mistake. Real confidence is secure enough to let someone else take the credit for something, without losing its own identity. Real confidence is humble. Real confidence recognizes its weaknesses and limitations, and is secure enough to admit when it is wrong."

'Living With Confidence: From Fear To Love”
Dan Pedersen

Dark Jar Tin Zoo
“If you have the woman you love, what more do you need? Well, besides an alibi for the time of her husband’s murder.
”
Dark Jar Tin Zoo, Love Quotes for the Ages. Specifically Ages 19-91.

Jarod Kintz
“I couldn't decide whether to take a nap or not, so I did what I always do when thinking over a decision—I slept on it.”
Jarod Kintz, The Merits of Marthaism, and How Being Named Susan Can Benefit You

Sheryl Sandberg
“When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitment-phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist and, trust me, over time, nothing is sexier.”
Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead
