According to published materials:
“The novel was inspired by the three weeks she spent aboard the HM Bark Endeavour, a replica of Captain James Cook's 18th century ship. Linda is a mother and grandmother, and at long last chatelaine of her castle…
“Linda Collison is a jack of all trades and master of none, just as her mother feared she would become.
“Linda has managed to kluge a composite career, making a living as a registered nurse, skydiving instructor, waitress and shoemaker, to name a few of her occupations.
“She has published in a wide and sundry assortment of publications, from literary magazines to Ladies Home Journal.
“In 1992 her life changed dramatically (again!) when she married fellow skydiver Bob Russell. With Bob she wrote two guidebooks, Rocky Mountain Wineries; a travel guide to the wayside vineyards and Colorado Kids; a statewide family outdoor adventure guide (both books by Pruett Publishing.)”
