Linda Apple is Mississippi gal whose roots run deep in the South. Her stories flow from generations of southern women whose share their tales while cooking, enjoying meals together, and rocking on the front porch in the velvety, magnolia perfumed evening breezes. From these memories, her debut novel, Women of Washington Avenue, the first book in her Moonlight Mississippi series, was born.
She also writes inspirational nonfiction. Linda has a strong conviction for people to write their personal experience stories, observations and epiphanies for future generations. Her book, Writing Life~ Your Stories Matter and soon to be published, Writing From Your Soul, are simple guides for that purpose.
In addition to writing Linda is also a public speaker. Through workshops and motivational presentations, her desire is to encourage, affirm, nurture talent, and equip people in order to help them achieve their goals and follow their dreams.
Linda lives with her husband, Neal, in Northwest Arkansas. They are the parents of five married children and ten grandchildren.
