Linda McCarty

Biography

Linda McCarty is a retired teacher. She spent twenty-five years in public school classrooms trying to convince her students that learning is fun and exciting and a lifelong endeavor. Before taking on the challenges of elementary and high school classrooms, she taught scuba diving and sailing and still teaches safe boating with the Coast Guard Auxiliary.
She began writing as an innocent pastime, and then an exchange of postcards and scribbled notes began to take on a life of its own and grew into three novels. When she began writing poetry in her classroom to encourage her student’s efforts, she discovered a new love.
Linda’s love of writing is eclipsed only by her love of family. She and her husband have no children of their own, but they proudly play the roles of Uncle Chuck and Aunt Linda for her brothers’ and sister’s six wonderful children and a growing number of magical grandchildren.
