More About Malinda:

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.”
