Hi, I’m Linda Browne.
I’m an LGBTQ+ writer of mostly middle grade fiction, especially historical fiction and fantasy.
I’m currently working on a middle grade steampunk novel called Shadow Apprentice. An earlier excerpt of this manuscript was longlisted in CANSCAIP’s Writing for Children Competition in 2020.
My first novel, The Land Between, a middle grade time travel adventure, was longlisted for the 2017 Times Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition.
My creative non-fiction article, The Murakami Method: Re-writing Long COVID, will be published in the anthology Bad Artist: Essays on Unconventional Creativity (2022).
Each month, we feature:
- board books, picture books, beginning readers, middle grade novels and graphic novels
- a unique picture book review panel – a children’s writer (me), a literacy tutor and an early childhood educator
- constructively critical reviews
- a widely diverse selection of books for all kids and the adults who care for them
I profile my container-grown food gardens and post random writerly thoughts on Instagram.
I am a current member of both CANSCAIP and SCBWI.
Thanks for stopping by!
