Linda Lanza


Linda Lanza writes to tell stories, to invite insight, to heal wounds, and to record impressions made on her through the experience of living. She is a classically-trained calligrapher and credentialed therapeutic writing specialist, and she holds a degree in English with highest honors from Rutgers University. When she is not writing, Linda enjoys reading, making calligraphic paintings and handmade books, textile and fiber arts, and walking outdoors. She resides in New Jersey in a home filled with books and a cat halfway between a river and an ocean.
