Linda Joy Singleton
Linda Joy Singleton has written YA & MG series about Goths, psychics, mermaids, aliens, cheerleaders, clones, parallel worlds and ghosts.
Her YA series, THE SEER and DEAD GIRL, were honored as YALSA Popular Paperback/Quick Picks. Younger readers enjoy her midgrade series STRANGE ENCOUNTERS about a family that solves paranormal weirdness on vacations.
Linda has loved writing and reading for as long as she can remember. Her first completed novel was written in pencil on blue-lined paper when she was eleven. Three years later, she stepped up to a typewriter and spent a two-week Christmas vacation writing a 200-page mystery about a girl sleuth named Kerry Blue. She also submitted short stories to American Girl Magazine and received encouraging rejections which fired up to her determination to become published series author.
When Linda isn't writing, she enjoys reading, movies, country walks, camping, bowling, watching reality shows and Farmville. She also collects vintage girl series books like Nancy Drew, Judy Bolton and Trixie Belden.
She lives with her husband, David in Northern California , in a country home where sheâ€™s surrounded by horses, peacocks, dogs, wild turkeys and demanding cats.
When asked why she loves writing for teens, Linda says, â€śEverything is a first for teens: having a BFF (best friends forever), going to school, planning for college, getting a job, driving a car and falling in love. Writing for teens is a gift, a responsibility, and an honor.â€ť
