Linda L. Zern lives, works, and dreams in Central Florida.

Born in Florida, raised on sunshine and bug spray, the author read every cereal box she could find and every book she could get her hands on, and when other people's books ran out, she started writing her own:

The Pocket Fairies of Middleburg, The Long-Promised Song, ZippityZern's: Uncommon Nonsense and Fifty More; MOONCALF (a finalist for the Space Coast Writers' Guild DON ARGO AWARD) BEYOND THE STRANDLINE (Book I); Following the Strandline (Book II); Ebook short story prequels: "Puppies", "Darby's Chickens", "Storm"; (COMING SOON) The Gryphon's Glade, a rural contemporary fantasy.

"I write because there can never be too many good books or the people who love them." Linda L. Zern
