Linda Dillman


WOW! This is my first book and, honestly, I thought it was going to be easy. Put a few words on paper and sell them. This is not the case! I started working on a book back in September, 2000 and, although I had some interested input from a friend, I never really went back to this particular story. It was a combination of fiction and real life experience all rolled into characters that I had never met. It was meant for adult consumption (not an erotica novel though) and now that I have completed and uploaded my children's novel, I want to revisit the first one. (now what did I do with that file?!)

The Magic White Whale was actually written for an assignment in school and, because I had no intentions of taking it further, wrote the main theme in one weekend just to get the assignment done and over with. Once I shared it with my class, they all agreed that I should get this published. So I added two chapters to the beginning and expanded more in the end. Now it is available for you to read.

I have been dabbling in many forms of art (mainly photography and graphic design) but I have never made it to the big league. I dont suspect this book will allow me to quit my job in retail however it would be a great feeling to know that my four years of hard work will actually pay off.

Thank you for clicking on my book.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Im not entirely sure when I started writing. So many times throughout my life, I have written something. Often it was in the form of an assignment at school, journals, or blogging.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
When I was in grade 7, I wrote a fable for English class about why blue jays scream before it rains. I was pretty proud of it and even had it read to the class as an example.
