Growing up in the farm lands of Illinois and graduating from college in the 1960’s, Linda Boltman was part of an era that challenged and changed women’s roles. Early careers in male-dominated fields provided insight into the man’s world, laying the stepping stones for future novels. Ever the adventurer, she went on to work for a major airline, traveled to over 55 countries and has had endless personal experiences such as backpacking and working throughout Europe, dogfights in a Varga VG-21, zip-lining in the jungles of Belize and rappelling off a 160-foot cliff. These life adventures gave wings and ink to her creative spirit.
She has had numerous short stories and poems published in Adventures for the Average Woman in magazine, ezine and Kindle form in both the United States and England. In February, 2011 her short story, The Captive, was selected for San Diego Writer’s Ink Anthology, Vol 4 as one of San Diego’s finest writers and she was honored to read her piece at their February 14th Press Release Party. Her epic poem, Underground Connection, was published by Tough Lit in the February issue. In addition, she has had stories accepted by GreenPrints Magazine, the San Diego Reader, Escapist and other publications.
Now an empty nester, Linda resides in San Diego with Jake, a 135-pound Akita/St. Bernard. She keeps close ties with her two children, David and Erin and incorporates her colorful experiences into her hobbies of travel, writing, painting and photography.
