Linda Kane Paavola
I was born an Army brat in Alabama. After my father retired from the military, we moved to Minnesota where I lived until after college. Getting away from home to go to college meant driving across the Red River (five miles) to North Dakota State University in Fargo for a Psychology major. My oldest brother introduced me to my best friend and fantastic husband while I was still in high school. He was already attending NDSU for his third degree. Needless to say, we are very strong alumni supporters to that university. GO BISON!
My husband and I knew each other for nine years before we married. He was already in the army when we married, so we moved quite often. I am militarily oriented through and through. Like I said, my father was in the army when I was born and then switched over to the National Guard. Both my brothers went into the military, one into the Army the other into the Air Force. Plus both of our sons went into the Army. Our daughter is the only one that did not decided to go into the military even though when she was about seven years old she said was going to be a Marine. She’s a medium height, slender, blonde, not your normal Marine. Within the following year, she changed her mind. Now, the profession that she has chosen and how she works, proves she would have made a wonderful Marine however.
We are now retired and living in Tucson, Arizona. Yes, it is a dry heat and that makes all the difference in the world no matter how many jokes there are about it. Through our travels, we’ve been able to extensively tour all fifty of the beautiful United States, several Canadian provinces, many Mexican cities and several of the Caribbean Islands. Our bucket list is still so long and growing by the day, we’ll have to live until we’re three hundred in order to cross everything off our list.
One item that was on my bucket list was to write a book. I seem to inhale any genre of books available and wanted to try my hand at writing my own. I have two non-fiction books already published under a pseudonym. They have both done very well. This is my first try at fiction however. When I was almost finished writing “Remie – I’ll Never Forget You,” my husband suggested I make the story into a trilogy, which after a very short consideration, I thought was a wonderful idea. I love reading trilogies because I get to keep the characters with me that much longer. They begin to feel like my friends. I then went back and made several changes, to include changing dates. So, now I am bringing you the ‘Never’ series. “Remie – I’ll Never Forget You” is the first in the trilogy. Next to come will be “Anna – You’re Never Too Old” and the final book will be “Pepper – Never Say Never.”
I hope you enjoy reading these books as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them. Watch for my second and third books in the series to come out soon. You won’t want to miss the rest of their stories.
