About Linda

Linda A. is an award-winning writer whose featured column Dear Ageless appeared regularly in various newspapers around the country including the Fort Worth Star Telegram and on the national wire service. For over ten years prior to her writing her popular column, she served as the Editor-in-Chief of numerous national magazines including the official Mickey Mantle and Selena Collector's Editions. Today, she is a consultant to publishing companies and advertising agencies. She also lectures and writes for various publications.

Linda also taught journalism and how to produce publications. For her work in the classroom, she was selected the State Journalism Teacher of the Year by the Press Women of Texas in 2005 and by the Interscholastic Press League in 2011. She is also the recipient of other awards including the Time Magazine Award for Most Outstanding Publication in the Nation, the Best Magazine in the State of Texas, gold medals for publication from Columbia University, four Texas State Star for book production, the President's Service Award for her work in magazines, and an Editor's Choice Award for her writing.

Linda has had numerous articles published in anthologies, her children's stories published in a variety of magazines and in Half Price Book's Bedtime series, and she has been regularly featured on radio.

She has traveled extensively throughout the world but has resided for over 30 years in Arlington, Texas where she raised two children and cared for two parents who served as the inspiration for her column Dear Ageless and her book about aging called Living Agelessly: Creating a Lifestyle for MidLife and Beyond. Her second book, Kitchen Stories Cookbook, will be on book stores shelves soon.

I love working with students, and I am passionate about reading and writing. Sharing what I know and have experienced is a joy and a blessing!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Writing

I taught writing, journalism and publication production for 20 years. I produced yearbooks and literary magazines that won top honors on the national level including Best Magazine in the Nation by Time Magazine. For my work in the classroom, I was twice honored with the Texas State Teacher of the Year Award. I am a former columnist for the Fort Worth Star-telegram and the author of two books. I have won writing and editing awards and was honored to receive the highest Service Award for my coverage of organ donations by President Bill Clinton.
