Linnie spent 2012 - 2013 turning a story she wrote on three Air Canada air-sickness bags into her first book, 'Our Canadian Love Story - An Immigration Tale' and went on to crowd-fund and publish 'Pom Pom - A Flightless Bully Tale' (2014) and 'Sadly The Owl - An Untold Tale' (2015). Her topics range from immigration (she came to Canada in 2002), to bullying (she went to High School), to depression (she was diagnosed in 2009).

With her fourth and fifth title in the works (one on breast feeding and one on American Sign Language, pub date May 2017), Linnie recently returned from Book Expo America 2016 in Chicago with a distribution deal with Independent Publishing Group's (IPG) Small Press United.

An infant under one arm and the production of book four and five (plus another crowd funding campaign) under the other, this indie author/publisher has got her hands full. Stay tuned.
