Author Bio

Read Linda’s personal About Me.

Official Bio: Linda Covella is an award-winning author of books for kids and teens.

Linda’s varied job experience and education (associate degrees in art, business and mechanical drafting & design, a BS degree in Manufacturing Management) have led her down many paths and enriched her life experiences. But one thing she never strayed from is her love of writing.

A writer for over 30 years, her first official publication was a restaurant review column in a local newspaper, and as a freelance writer, she continued to publish numerous articles in a variety of publications. But when she published articles for children’s magazines, she realized she’d found her niche: writing for children. She wants to share with kids and teens her love of books: the worlds they open, the things they teach, the feelings they express.

She’s been a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) since 2002.

No matter what new paths she may travel down, she sees her writing as a lifelong joy and commitment.
