Linda Naseem

I've been a writer since birth---I was born with a pen in my hand!---but life swirled on and I worked as a RN and raised three children (mostly by myself). The children are grown and I have retired and now I am using that pen I was born with.

Writing is the way I hold myself together. Without it, the many different parts of me separate and fight each other. In my books--so far just fiction---I can get my different pieces to work together. As you may guess, some of the things I write about are not so pleasant. My pieces each have their own issue that inflames them, and this comes through in my writing. Both of my novels have won awards in the Human Relations Indie Book Awards, so they are saying what I want them to say.

I guess a bio is supposed to give facts and figures; so, briefly: I'm an army brat, born at Fort Ord, California. Have lived on both sides of the US, including Hawaii before it was a state, and in Europe and West Africa. I speak (besides English) Swedish, once knew Hausa but have mostly forgotten it, can stumble over Spanish. I love to dance and my camera is my best friend. I live in Colorado with a monster cat named Greybear, sometimes also known as Grizzlybear (depending on his behaviour), and his two parakeets.
