About the Author
Linda Colwell credits her upbringing in a peaceful valley in West Virginia as the cocoon that nurtured her creativity. People, nature, and the calm small-town lifestyle developed her sensitivities, piqued her curiosity. Settling in Michigan as a teenager opened her to a new crop of ideas and possibilities. Writing was a small voice inside of her that asked to be given expression. She tended to push it aside until her college English professor, Ms. Cody said, “If you don’t do something with your writing ability, I’ll come back and haunt you.” When Linda married and eventually became the mother of three sons, she did much more reading than she did writing. Once her sons grew and were well on their way, Linda granted herself the freedom to pursue her lifelong ambition as a published author and writer. Her path led her on a wonderful journey of self-discovery. First writing short stories pulled from memories fed her desire to write more. Linda had the ability to take a memory, picture, or feeling and weave it into a creative and fascinating tale that would erupt magically from her muse. All of this culminated into her focus to write novels and have her works published for all to enjoy. This path propelled her in writing circles to meet new people and other writers who would become life-long friends and provide many fond memories, which eventually in 2000 led to her first published novel, When the Lilacs Bloom, a very well-received paranormal romance that was critically acclaimed by many. She was soon hard at work on her second full novel, Cry of the Brethren. Unfortunately, at times life challenges us, and after her husband fell ill with a chronic illness that curtailed her ability to fully pursue her craft, she again set aside her dream to take care of her family as a loving wife and mother. At the time Linda had several other works written and ready for publication. Ultimately while she was not able to fully realize her dream in her lifetime, happily now we are able to honor Linda with the publication of all her novels. Of course this one being Cry of the Brethren, with several more novels Linda had written to follow. Look for Towards the Sunset being the next of her books to be released in the near future.
