Author name: Linda Smolkin
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Book: Among the Branded (May 2017)
Bio: Linda Smolkin always wanted to be a writer—ever since she saw her first TV commercial and wondered how to pen those clever ads. She got her degree in journalism and became a copywriter. Linda landed a job at an ad agency, where she worked for several years before joining the nonprofit world. When not in front of the computer, she’s behind the drums (slightly) annoying her husband, son, and their 70-pound dog.
Favorite thing about being a writer: Letting my imagination go wild. Oh, and writing dialogue!
Biggest challenge as an indie author: Finding enough time to do everything. I have a full-time job, so all of the writing and business aspects of being an indie author have to be done on the side. But, meeting my goal of becoming a published novelist has been really great—except for the dark circles!
Favorite book: So many wonderful books to choose from, but if I could only choose one, it would be: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
Awards/special recognition: San Francisco Book Review rated Among the Branded 4.5 out of 5 stars, and in their review wrote, “This is a beautiful and fascinating novel that will keep readers hooked.”
