Reared on a farm in South Texas, Linda earned bachelor's and master's degrees from Abilene Christian University and Houston Baptist University. She devoted 40 years to students with special needs and reared a daughter and son who are now veterinarians practicing together.

Linda was introduced to the world of publishing in 2007 by winning an essay contest that resulted in the Christian Writers Guild's Writing for the Soul Conference. Subsequently, Gospel Publishing House featured her article "The Choice" in their quarterly publication, LIVE.

Ann Tatlock's writing is masterful. The Names of the Stars is no exception. I love how she was able to combine Dickens's A Christmas Carol with vaudeville & the golden age of Hollywood and tie a beautiful bow on top with sweet Christmas seasonings. ...more

What a beautiful story joining the angst and dreams of a teenaged girl with the bitterness and regret of a retired farmer. Their serendipitous friendship touches the heart and lingers well after the final page has been turned.
