Linda's first novel has been published and is available on Amazon.com
I am pleased to announce the publication of my first novel, The Matriarch. More than five years in the making, the book is an "adventure," about a woman who has a spiritual encounter through which she is given three mandates from God.
This encounter and the instructions she receives lead her on an adventure involving a Native American casino owner, a hi-tech corporate leader and the hierarchy of the Catholic Church.
The book is available from Amazon and I am donating a portion of the proceeds for this book to the Women's Ordination Conference.
In 2012, I will be planning some book signings. If your local book store, organization or book club would like to arrange a book signing, please let me know. And do visit the books' website www.the-matriarch.com. If you've read the book, I would love to have some quick comments to post on the website.
