Linda Cousine

Goodreads Author

in Los Angeles, The United States




Member Since
October 2012


Linda Cousine is an author whose first inspiration to write came to her in a hot flash. Literally. It also came with weight gain, night sweats, dry skin, and hide-the-knives, and the idea to share her struggles in the form of her Middle-Aged Hottie book series, a tongue-in-cheek look at one woman's struggle through the minefield that is menopause.

When she’s not arm wrestling Father Time, Linda can be found at her computer writing books with the word “Hot” in the title, or books inspired by the other dysfunctional events of her life. Linda lives in Orange County, CA with her husband, and a dog named Dude.

Short but sweet.

Great practical advice, just wished there was more of it! For anyone who needs the Cliff Notes version on how to tighten your writing, this book will definitely head you in the right direction.
Twenty-One Trees by Linda Cousine
"Great read

I had a hard time putting this down.. Must Read to the end. It made me upset at times how selfish Savannah is, but I still read it! I want to go meet Savannah for coffee."
