Name: Linda M. Crate
Aka: Linda Crate, Linda Marie Crate
Linda Crate is a Pennsylvanian native. She was born in Pittsburgh, but she was raised in the rural town of Conneautville. She has been writing since she was thirteen - it's just something that she's always loved to do. She writes poetry, short stories, and novels.
I'm a writer, I enjoy the craft of being a wordsmith. I always remember the phrase that "poets are truth tellers". When I write, I try to convey some form of realism even if I'm writing a sci-fi story or one that is set in a mythical land. I try to make the characters real and personable so the reader can be invested in the characters and in the story that's being told.
