Get to Know Linda Oaks

How long have you been writing?
Forever, it seems like. I always had to write poetry, songs, papers in school and stories. At the time, I just didn’t realize where that would lead me.
What made you become a writer? 
I love reading, and had always wanted to write my own stories so one day, I finally got my courage up and did. 
Have you always wanted to be a writer? 
No, I didn’t. If not, what was your change of calling/career? I can’t remember. One day I just sat down and started writing then one page turned into ten and so on until I had a book.  When it was finished, I couldn’t believe that I had actually written a book. lol. 
Do you write from experience? 
Yes, but this is fiction so there is, of course, exaggeration on my part, but I think you can find bits and pieces of all authors in their stories. For example, in “Chasing Rainbows” and “Finding Forever”, Kara owns an Escort. I used to own an Escort back in the day. 
What is your biggest challenge as a writer? 

Do you listen to music while you write? 
New soundtrack for every book? 
Yes, always. I’m also on Spotify too. You can find playlist for my books there.
Do you have a dedicated writing space?  
Not really, I’m just from here to there whenever I write; bed, dining room table, or sitting outside in a lawn chair under a silver maple tree.  A comfy chair? A desk? Recliner on the back porch?

Coast to Coast Book Besties is against book piracy and supports all our authors….Please give us your stand on this issue:
I’m strongly against piracy, and thank you Coast to Coast Book Besties for your stand.

What are your hobbies when not writing? 
Reading, hiking and watching too much Netflix. I’m also on Pinterest a lot. 
Do you have a family?  
Yes. Children? I have two. How do they feel/know about your writing subject matter? They don’t really mind that I write or the subject matter, but sometimes they do have issues with the amount of time I spend writing. It’s sometimes difficult to balance the two. My family is very proud of me and supportive.
