The author showcase at Millthorpe is getting closer. I am re-blogging Kim’s interview with me to give more background. Thanks, Kim.

  1. Good piece, Linda – and interesting. I am always intrigued by the motivations that drive us to write. I wonder where your writing instincts lie, do you feel you have inherited your mother’s attachment to family and home ( the things that made her a reluctant emigree) or your father’s adventurous spirit?

    • I think I have both in a way, Frederick, though probably my father’s need for new horizons trumps Mum’s need for security. However, my two novels are set in the years when I was growing from young teenager to young woman. I think I want to show that world to other young people today, to get them to see the background that anchors their parents and grandparents, how different their world was in so many ways and how they did the best they could under the circumstances..

  2. I am going back to read “the rest of the story” and find out more, Linda! ✨😀
