Meet the Author

Author Linda Black grew up in Curtis, Arkansas as the fourth of twelve children. She received her early education via a one-room schoolhouse and in many ways it was a blessing, as it exposed her to varying levels of education, and went on to Peake High School in Arkadelphia, Arkansas through her junior year.
After graduating high school (John Marshall Harlan) in Chicago, Illinois, Linda relocated to Lansing, Michigan where she found employment with the General Motors Corporation. She was a faithful employee for over thirty years. While in Lansing, she chose Lansing Community College as her institution of higher learning. She was recommended for honors writing courses and became a valued member of the poetry club.
Linda developed a love of writing early in her young life. At the tender age of 10, she wrote her first song. It was promptly sent off to Nashville to be set to music and even though it was not published, Linda never lost sight of her love for writing.
Linda and her husband Richard are proud to call six children, eleven grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren...family. Together they reside in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas with two of their grandsons. Linda is an avid member of the Village Writer’s Club and a member of The National League of American Pen Women-Arkansas Pioneer Branch, where she currently serves as secretary. She is also an award winning poet and works as a 911 operator at her local police station. She continues to write and still considers children to be her purest inspiration.

    Heartwarming, Beautifully written, Poignant!
    This beautifully written, tender, story is about a little girl who is very sad after the death of her dad. She has no friends.
    Cara loves the water and she and her mom, Elaine, take a trip on the yacht about 2 years after the death of Cara's dad.
    The trip becomes a real adventure when they encounter a wounded porpoise, which Cara names Floppy. Cara and 
    Floppy develop a remarkable friendship, which lasts for many years. The underlying message of the story is loveyl
    and special. I highly recommend the story for children, parents and teachers.Review by Deanie Humphrys Dunne
