Linda L. Zern is my favorite author. But before that, she was my neighbor, and before that she was my friend.
This past summer, she won this award
for this book, Gryphon’s Glade. It’s a fantasy.
It’s a different genre from her bestselling Strandline series, which is a near-apocalyptic story line.
But the reason she’s my favorite author is because of this book, Mooncalf. The writing is so well-done, and the story is reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird. It was written to a middle-grade audience, but it made me cry! And she’s in the process of writing a sequel!
All of her stories are based in Central Florida, where she has lived most, if not all, her life. I cannot recommend her enough!
And if you want a touch of her humor, check out her blog at zippityzerns.blogspot.com. She’s hilarious!
