About the Author/Illustrator
Linda Thomas studied oil painting as a young child. Her artistic talent grew as she did. She had a passion for sculpture as well as drawing. She graduated from Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota. She earned a B.A. with majors in Elementary Education and Physical Education. She enjoyed interning in the underprivileged areas of downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. The Lord led her to leave the cold weather of Minnesota and teach in an underprivileged area of Florida. She enjoyed teaching fourth grade and later physical education in Immokalee, a small farming town in Florida. She acquired her Master’s Degree in Administration of Education while teaching there.
Linda retired from teaching after thirty years as a public school teacher in Collier County. She lives on a small ranch with her husband. There they train quarter horses and raise cattle and goats.
Linda is the author of “Little Miss Frisky- a Story about an Unwanted Pony” as well as “Little Miss Frisky- a Brave Little Horse.” She has also written the short devotional “Upward Climbing.” Linda enjoys playing the guitar and has recently written “He Put a Song in my Heart,” a Christian contemporary songbook with chords for guitar.
“It’s wonderful to be able to retire to what God has been preparing me to do for a lifetime. God enabled me to write and illustrate these books so naturally. It was as if the words and the pictures just rolled off the pages with no effort on my part! It is my hope that children of all ages will enjoy reading these stories."
