Connect with Linda
I was born in San Antonio, Texas – an identical twin to my sister, Brenda. Growing up, we were known throughout the neighbourhood simply as 'Twin'.
No one except our parents and older brother could tell us apart. We dressed alike, wore our hair alike, and even had the same glasses, so it wasn't surprising that we were stared at everywhere we went!
Consequently, when I announced at the age of 25 that I was going to start writing romance novels, I wasn't surprised when Brenda said, 'I don't care how famous your name gets, just make sure your face doesn't become recognisable!'
Needless to say, my face isn't known in every household in the U.S. ...yet. Recently, I spent six weeks taking screenwriting classes at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, and I've made no secret of the fact that I plan to write and – hopefully – go on to sell a screenplay.
And my ambitions don't stop there – I already have my dress for the Oscars.
