Linda Au Parker has been a proofreader, copyeditor, and typesetter since the 1980s. She currently does freelance work in these areas when she’s not writing and producing her own books. In addition to coaching for WriteAtHome, Linda is on the board of the St. Davids Christian Writers’ Association and serves as author liaison for the Beaver County BookFest in western Pennsylvania.


Her hobbies and interests include participating in National Novel Writing Month, crocheting, reading, adventure gaming, and tinkering with her many typewriters. She shares her home with her husband, Wayne, and between them they share six grown children and one new grandson. She shares her office with her guinea pigs—Carl, Steve, and Frid—and her backyard with some overly friendly squirrels, cardinals, bunnies, and even a groundhog.
