Hi, my name is LINDA COVELLA. My varied background and education (an AA degree in Art, an AS degree in Mechanical Drafting and Design, and a BS degree in Manufacturing Management) have led me down many paths and enriched my life experiences. But one thing I have never strayed from is my love of writing.
My first official publication was a restaurant review column for a local newspaper. But when I published articles for various children’s magazines, I realized I’d found my niche: writing for children. I hope to bring to children the feelings books gave to me when I was a child: the worlds they opened, the things they taught, the feelings they expressed.
I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). I live in Santa Cruz with my husband, Charlie, and dog, Ginger.
No matter what new path I may travel down, I see my writing as a lifelong joy and commitment.
