Profile: Linda Taylor

About This Author

Linda ( L or L A) Taylor was born in Hastings, a seaside town on the south east coast of England, brought up in a guest house with old people. There were eccentrics living with her family there who proved inspiring when she took up writing. She has self published several novels in various genres and volumes of short stories: romances, two thrillers, novels about unusual friendships and relationships within family and other groups. She has also recently written three comic style stories for children. So far, three of her short stories have also been published in a local magazine GOLDEN TIMES and one story in a publication of stories by authors worldwide entitled AN ECLECTIC MIX Vol 1. Story writing was her love at school and in her 40's she began to write. Work and personal set- backs meant she was only able to publish when she retired in her late 50's. Her father was originally a violinist until injuries incurred in the second world war ended that career. Her mother was Flemish and one of seven children. Linda is thus the seventh child of the seventh child. She is interested in psychic phenomena and has written "13 Stranger Stories", "Telling Dreams", "In Her Image" and "One Weekend" that reveal her interest in the 'unknown' and her love of ghost stories. On occasion, she has 'felt' the imminent death of other people. She worked as a clerk in a bank and in private local companies and finally for the County Council in the Fostering and Adoption department and in Adult Social Care.
