Malinda Gwyn-Thornton is a writer who opens her heart and leaves it on the page. She believes that there are many who can relate to her life experiences and hopes that her readers will gain the support necessary to make it through any given situation. Based in her hometown of Savannah, Georgia, Malinda is a dedicated mother, wife and community advocate. Malinda joined theWRITEaddiction as one of the first cohort of writers in an effort to find new ways of applying her B.A. in English from Armstrong State University.
A lover of 18th century literature, mysteries, BBC and basically all things British, Malinda’s favorite authors are The Bronte Sisters and Jane Austen. Her earliest memory of wanting to write was in high school. Once her teacher introduced her to 18th century literature she was hooked.
“I thought, I can write something like this. I feel like I’ve lived that life before. I discovered a connection to that time period and it never left me. The main reason the females in those stories wrote as an outlet because they weren’t encouraged to pursue their writing in that time. I really relate to that. I didn’t act on the desire to write; however, until much later in my life.”
