Writer, Aikido student, horseperson, organizer of information, backyard naturalist, occasional photographer, and maker of big green salads. Linda lives in rural San Diego County, California, with her husband, Michael, their two donkeys, Eeyore and Clementine, a few cats, and an acre of old avocado trees.


Linda's first book, "A Bowl of Love — How to Make A Big Green Dojo Potluck Salad," will be released in February 2013.


Additional books in the works include personal reflections on her experiences in her practice of Aikido, and practical tips for students. She also plans to write a series of books on horsemanship and horse keeping, featuring some lessons she learned the hard way.
