How Many Words Make a Novel

Kruger National Park, South Africa

Hi! I'm Linda

For the past fifteen years, I have worked as a freelance associate editor. Mostly in traditional publishing for higher education (college and university).

When I published my first fictional novel at 55, I realized I needed some resources and tools that weren’t available to self-publishing authors. So I created them! Sharing them with my writing group before someone gave me the idea to offer them to other writers and thus Funny Face Fiction was born… to help writers.

But I’m not only a writer and editor. I am a small business owner, Etsy Star Seller, Microsoft expert, military mother, entertainment junkie, avid traveller and hockey fan (Canadian eh).
