You might know her as the woman behind “Stand By Me Day,” but did you know she wrote a book about a family who settled in Brownsville?
Linda and her husband retired in Brownsville, Oregon in 2005. This is where her love of history really blossomed. Linda has done historical research for different community events she is involved with, sharpening her research skills.
Curiosity about Henry Spalding and his immediate family caused her to research their story after she found that they lived in Brownsville for a time. The culmination of this data resulted in the journey of writing this book. Since writing the book, Linda has met many descendants of Henry Spalding, which adds to the depth of her experience. Probably the biggest thrill was working alongside famous author Jane Kirkpatrick while she wrote her historical fiction novel called “The Memory Weaver”.
