Linda Dryfhout Headshot

Linda started writing poetry as a child when she would create greeting cards with poems inside for family members.  Glitter on the front of the card was always a must.

In eighth grade, she was associate editor of the school newspaper.  She enjoyed creative writing courses during high school and after college contributed articles and poetry to the church newsletter.

Her favorite gift to give her daughters, as they were growing up, was always a book and she loves gifting books to her grandchildren.

She actively began pursuing publication after joining the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. At present, she is an area representative for SCBWI.

An avid reader, Linda loved going to the bookmobile to stock up on books.

Her fourth grade teacher encouraged her to write a poem for an Arbor Day contest. Her poem, “The Resplendence of Trees,” won and she read her poem on Arbor Day when a tree was planted at the school.

A wordsmith, Linda attempted to go through the dictionary to learn the meaning of more words when she was 10.

Linda believes she became familiar with poetry when she would sing hymns in church.

One of her first mystery stories was written in grade school and her mother proudly typed it up on her typewriter.
