Linda Zern


Linda L. Zern is an award-winning short story writer and English major at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida.

She has written children's chapter books including Mooncalf and The Pocket Fairies of Middleburg; an inspirational book titled The Long-Promised Song, which she wrote and illustrated; and a collection of humorous essays called Zippityzern's: A Collage.

Beyond the Strandline is a work of young adult fiction and Zern’s first full-length novel. A longtime fan of "prepper" and futuristic survival novels such as Pat Frank's Alas Babylon, Zern hopes this book will inspire a new generation to imagine the ramifications of collapse and to "prepare every needful thing."

When she is not writing fiction, Zern grows flowers, butterflies, grandchildren, rabbits, chickens, and horses in the beautiful countryside of Central Florida.
