Episode 89: Linda Rosen and The Emerald Necklace
Fitness Professional turned novelist, Linda Rosen’s books are set in the “not-too-distant past” and examine how women reinvent themselves despite obstacles thrown their way. A central theme is that blood is not all that makes a family– and they always feature a piece of jewelry! Her novels, The Disharmony of Silence, Sisters of the Vine and The Emerald Necklace are published by Black Rose Writing. In addition to writing novels, Linda was a contributor to Women in the Literary Landscape: A WNBA Centennial Publication for the Women's National Book Association and the craft book, Launch Pad The Countdown to Writing Your Book. She is a member of the Women's Fiction Writers Association and co-founder of the South Florida chapter of the Women’s National Book Association. In addition, she is a founding member of The Author Talk Network and an administrator of the Facebook Group, Bookish Road Trip and editor of their newsletter, Wanderlust. Linda lives with her husband in New Jersey, but when the leaves fall and she has to swap sandals for shoes and socks, they move to their home in Florida.
