Linda McNabb was born in Rutland, England, in 1963 and lived there until she was four years old when the family came to New Zealand on a large ship called Rangitane. She wrote her first book when she was seven or eight and enjoyed it so much she’s never stopped writing since.
Linda writes stories that she would love to have read as a child and still loves to read children’s books. She submitted her first book to a publisher when her eldest daughter was two; she was 12 before Linda had a story accepted. Linda says she lives mostly in her own little fantasy world and every now and then pops into the real world. She mostly writes fantasy as there are no rules to abide by – Linda and her characters can do anything they like! Several of Linda's books have translated into Romanian.
Linda has two daughters and a cat called Crystal.
