Namaste which translated means the Spirit in me greets the Spirit in you.

This is Linda, I have to write at least 5 days a week and get edgy if I don’t. Many writers will say that they will write whether someone reads what they’ve written or not. I believe we need the readers as their feedback improves. I even enjoy the editing process too. Just as well as I am on the 11th edit of Book One in a Fantasy series!

I became a published children’s author with Footprints Publishing in November 2020 with The Sand Bear Has No Socks. 2021/2022 saw me submit six possibly 7 children’s stories to my editor and we hope to publish at least 5 of them in 2023. If it pans out there will be a boxed set available of “ERIC” stories. He is The Sand Bear in the Sand Bear Has No Socks.

Channelled Meditations went into reprint in 2020 and I withdrew Heartfelt Communications from print as I was not happy with it. Depending on how my fiction writing goes this year I may rework it. I also have another non-fiction at first draft stage with the  working title of Ditch your labels embrace your hats.

As you can see I work in multiple genres and plan to publish the first book in the fantasy series in 2023/2024, closely followed by Book 2.

As a member of the Society of Women Writers of Western Australia for over fifteen year, I have short stories, memoir and poetry published in the Society’s Anthologies. I enjoy their retreats (and in fact Sand Bear was birthed at one.)


As we journey through life so much is talked about seeking, finding the answers. As we are all unique there are no right or wrong answers only the ones that resonate with our own unique truths. We are souls with a physical existence. What makes your Soul sing? Do you live a joyfully enthusiastic life? If not, why do you not choose to do so? We need to be part of the solution whether it is our health spiritual and physical or our way of being.

The choice is in your head, change your thought patterns and connect to the feelings. Be in the present moment. Express gratitude for all that has gone before, for the now and for the potential of tomorrow.

Please join me so we can discover our joys, share our triumphs and experience our lessons as we live and grow in Love, Light and Joy.

Choose to live in the present. Refuse to allow the past dictate your present. Live Love and Find JOY.
