Linda Apple, July 2022 Speaker

Linda Apple is the author of nonfiction, women’s fiction, and children’s books. Her recent middle-grade early reader, BOWWOW-Book of Winston’s Words of Wisdom, is being used by school districts for their One-Book programs. Book three of her Moonlight Mississippi Series, Lexi’s Choice, was released May 4th.

 She has served as president of the Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc. and the Ozark Creative Writers Conference. Linda has taught writing workshops in the Midwest and southern portions of the United States, as well as Great Britain and Ireland, which was on her bucket list. She is also a motivational speaker.

Linda is a firm believer in writing with the reader in mind and leaving them better after having read her books. She also encourages writers and readers alike to value their own stories and to share them.

She lives in Northwest Arkansas with her husband, children, thirteen grandchildren, and her writing partner, Winston, a feisty Scottish Terrier. He barks; she types.

Linda will present an unconventional approach to character development. Oftentimes, as writers, we put a little bit of ourselves into our characters which results in too much blending of personalities. By assigning an element such as earth, fire, air (wind), or water, to a character the contrast is sharp. It also improves how your characters interact with each other. So, what are the characteristics of each element? Join us and find out. This is an interactive session and above all, it’s fun.
