Linda Smolkin always wanted to be a writer—ever since she saw her first TV commercial and wondered how to pen those clever ads. She got her degree in journalism and became a copywriter. Linda landed a job at an advertising agency, where she worked for several years before joining the nonprofit world. She’s the author of Among the Branded (May 2017) and The Secret We Lost (September 2018). When not in front of the computer, she’s behind the drums (slightly) annoying her family.

I had the honor of attending one of his events last summer. At the end, Sedaris did a Q&A with the audience and someone asked, "What's the worst advice you've ever been given?" and he said somebody once told him that he should have a Plan B if this writing thing didn't work out. Love that he ignored that advice!!(less)

As for mysteries in my own life, there aren't any (that I know of) that would make a good plot so maybe that's why I like using my imagination to come up with stuff that can happen to my characters.
