Linda Apple (email@example.com; www.lindaapple.com) is the author of nonfiction, women’s fiction, and children’s books. Book three of her Moonlight Mississippi Series, Lexi’s Choice was released in 2022. Sixteen of her stories have also been published in the Chicken Soup for the Soul books.
Her middle-grade early reader, BOWWOW-Book of Winston’s Words of Wisdom, was chosen by a Pennsylvania school district for their One-Book programs. It was also on the short list for the Benjamin Franklin award. Winston’s work-in-progress book, Winston’s World as He Sniffs It, will be one of the books exhibited at UK’s London Book Fair in April.
Linda has served as president of the Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc. and the Ozark Creative Writers Conference. She also has the great honor of being chosen to be inducted into the 2023 Arkansas Writers Hall of Fame. Linda has taught writing workshops in the Midwest and southern portions of the United States, as well as Great Britain and Ireland. She is also a motivational speaker.
She is a firm believer in writing with the reader in mind and to leave them better after having read her books. She also encourages writers and readers alike to value their own stories and to share them. Her goal is to spread seeds of inspiration and give wings to all she has the privilege to mentor. She writes from her soul and speaks from her heart.
Linda lives in Northwest Arkansas with her husband, children, thirteen grandchildren and her writing partner, Winston, a feisty Scottish Terrier. He barks, she types.
