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).
