I am Linda Visman, an English-born Australian, a former teacher/school principal, who both loves and fears writing – the fear is whether I have the ability to do it well. I am also a mother of five sons, and a grandmother, who wants to leave something worthwhile for her descendants. I have written a comprehensive family history, and plan to write the biography of my amazing father.
I have had many short stories and poems published in various anthologies and magazines here in Australia. I self-published my first novel, Ben’s Challenge, in August 2011. It is available in print and Kindle formats at amazon.com.
Now, as I work on my second novel and other writing projects, I try to stave off writer’s block by putting down a few of my thought on various topics, writing included. I hope you will give me a little feedback on what I have written.
I live with my wonderful second husband on the east coast of New South Wales, in a village that others come to for holidays.
