Thank you for visiting.

This is what is happening:



Linda’s transformational memoir,


Linda is known for her heart-felt, vulnerable, courageous contemplative writing that gives voice to feelings some find difficult to speak. While writing her memoir, she tapped into a deep well of inner wisdom leading to compassion for herself and her family. She gained a new appreciation for her life path as the context for her spiritual journey, recognizing for the first time the gifts within the struggle. Her heart opened to deeper expressions of love for her daughter, transforming their relationship.

I read this to my daughter and asked, “Is that true?”

She smiled and said, “Yes, it is.”

Warmed my heart.

Linda’s Collaborative Writing

Sophia's Table 001

Sophia’s Table: Women’s Wisdom in Five Voices, published in 2013, is the result of a collaboration of five women growing out of their participation in a contemplative writing group. Linda was touched when she was appreciated for her heart-felt, vulnerable, and courageous writing, especially being told she wrote what others had not been able to voice, validating the truth that none of us are alone.

“Reading Sophia’s Table, you feel as if you’re talking with an old friend. Such deep sharing. Warm and insightful. It triggered some thinking for me, and made me look at my own life differently.”   ~Cynthia R.
