Linda S. Clare has always been a daydreamer, artist and storyteller. She received her first paid byline for a poem published in the Denver Post newspaper when she was a high school student. She’s been writing professionally since 1993 and has taught fiction, memoir and essay writing for Lane Community College for more than a dozen years. In addition to her published books, award-winning short stories, articles and essays, she works as an expert writing advisor for George Fox University and is a frequent presenter at writer’s conferences.

Her alter ego, Miss Crankypants, has loads of fun and laughs, mostly at Cranky Cat’s expense, in weekly blog rants that are chock-full of fat cats and CRANKYTUDE! In addition to doting on grandbabies, collecting too many cats, gardening and walking on the beach, she loves to write and to help writers develop their skills. She lives in Oregon with her family and all those wayward cats.

  1. Hi Linda: I don’t know if you remember, but I took your class exactly a year ago. I was wondering if you are teaching the “publishing” class you sometimes offer. Thank you.

  2. I am so glad that I discovered your Internet site. Kindness and empathy are quintessential, and your site seems to suggest your fine qualities relating respectfully with people as you empower their energies when writing. Thank you.
