Hi, I'm a writer and blogger living in Northern Idaho near the Spokane River.

I participate in the BookTube community of YouTube. My channel name is "Book Lady."

My interests include family rights, art, and archeology.

I'm currently working on editing a series of four novels I call the Antediluvian Adventures.

My novel, River Girl, has its own website:

“I believe the greatest pleasure in writing is in the progressive artistry of it. Each project is an attempt to do better than before - to produce a worthy work of art - something having meaning not only for the writer but also for those who may share the experience of it later. I treasure the hope of producing something that will make a difference in the world - some kind of positive change.”
Linda Jo Martin
