Linda Robinson is the author of three published novels. Born and raised in south Alabama and educated for eleven years in a small country town, she married at sixteen years of age, and they moved to a city with better job opportunities. Two years later her husband joined the Air Force, and they traveled extensively.
Linda obtained her high school diploma in Florida, the year their oldest son started first grade. She continued her education by attending college classes as a part-time student in several colleges in Colorado, studying Accounting and Computer Science. While raising a family, she worked in various fields, including a Computer Programmer/Analyst position with the U.S. Government in Denver.
After traveling to many states and countries for over thirty years, Linda and her husband returned to south Alabama—to the same city where they first began their married life together—and built a retirement home. She has been married to Bruce, the love of her life, for fifty-six years. They have two sons, five grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
Linda began her writing career in 2008, and her first novel was published in 2010. When Love Abounds is a historical, fictional novel set in south Alabama beginning in 1941 and deals with family and friend relationships. It’s all about faith, hope, and love—love of family, spouse, and friends in spite of difficult beginnings. Most important of all, the protagonist, Lou Ellen, discovers it’s about God’s love, protection, and provisions for each of his children, without which her life would not have been worth living. Rails of Freedom, the second novel in Linda’s Love Abounds series, begins in Mississippi in 1955 with the character of Nathan, who was introduced in her first book. It takes the reader on a lengthy journey zigzagging across the continent following Nathan’s life as a runaway teen, hobo, migrant worker, and common laborer searching for contentment and love. The fictional characters in her novels often enjoy some of the author’s own many travels and true life experiences.
Her most recent work is her Faith and Family series consisting of three novellas: Natalie’s Choices, released in August, 2014, is set in 1987 on a Southern plantation in Vicksburg, Mississippi, and depicts teen angst, family relationships, and the consequences of both right and wrong choices. Natalie Hudson and her friend Tori Rhodes have a deep friendship, but can it withstand the life-altering events and endure the endless trials life throws at them? Natalie’s Commitments released in December, 2014, continues with Natalie in college facing greater challenges, and Natalie’s Consequences is set to release in 2015.
Linda states, “Writing is an addiction. I retired in early 2012, joined the national group of American Christian Fictions Writers, my local Writers’ Forum, and many others. In addition to novels, I write short stories and blogs, and I intend to simply write out the rest of my life!”
