From Idea to Publication and Beyond
Wed, April 19, 2017, 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM BST
Author Linda Stratmann will give a talk entitled From Idea to Publiation and Beyond.
Linda was born in the City of Leicester, though her parents maintained close ties with the family in London. Linda has always felt that if there was any place she really belonged, it was London, and moved here in 1986.
Linda's love affair with the printed word probably started when she was two, when she eagerly absorbed the alphabet as taught to her by her mother, and has had her nose in a book ever since. The scribbling of poems and stories certainly dates back as early as six, and her first efforts at a novel from the age of eleven.By her teens, however, she had developed an absorbing and life-long interest in true crime, probably taking after her mother who loved to read about famous trials.
In 2001 Linda was commissioned to write her first published book on the history of chloroform.
Linda will refer to her latest novel in the Frances Doughty series A True and Faithful Brother published in March 2017
