The very first time Linda figured out that she was interested in writing was when she took a creative writing class. Writing became a big part of her life.

Jones was always a full time wife and mother for many years, as well as a fast-food restaurant manager, a compulsive taker of classes, a real estate saleswoman, and a picture framer with her own business.
