Linda Morrow spent the first seventy-five years of her life in New England before moving to Bellingham, WA with her wife in 2013. She is the proud mother of three adult sons – each with his own unique personality and gifts. Linda’s career as a public school educator spanned thirty-five years and included stints as a middle school classroom teacher, principal and school librarian. While acknowledging the need for continuous refinement, she remains a passionate supporter of public school education. In 2013, Linda returned to the classroom, this time as a student, when she enrolled in memoir writing class taught by published novelist Laura Kalpakian. This nine-month experience proved transformative, and Linda now spends most days drinking lattes and writing at Tony’s Coffee where the baristas know her by name. Her essays have appeared in Adirondack Epiphanies, Ra Press; Memory into Memoir Penchant Press; and several editions of Whatcom Writes. Her memoir, What Am I - Chopped Liver? is currently in revision, with an anticipated publication date of …who knows????. The support of her two writing groups, the infamous Talespinners, and the newly hatched Inklings has been invaluable in this effort. In addition to writing, Linda enjoys spending time with her two grandchildren – Piper and Maxwell; walking, hiking and downhill skiing; beachcombing and the vibrant community of Bellingham. She also remains true to her New England roots by cheering on the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots.
