With over thirty years in information technology and software development, a B.S. Interactive Media Design (2012, Art Institute Pittsburgh) and a M.S. Education, Learning Design and Technology (2014, Purdue University), Linda is an information and education technology expert.
Both her Bachelors and Masters degrees were completed 100% online – an experience that provides her with a unique insight into the challenges and problems facing online students. In Fall 2016 Linda began her journey towards a PhD in Educational Psychology and Research Methods at George Mason University.
A self-confessed technophile, she is proficient in over ten programming languages and is currently learning Unreal Engine 4 at Udemy.
Simplicity is not always easy to attain when building complex information systems, but Linda enjoys the challenge of creating software applications that are easy to use. Linda started her own software business, Yellow Hare Inc, in 2011, but decided to close it in 2017 to focus on her studies. The pull of entrepreneurship is still strong however, and she’s currently working on a video game with the goal to launch a new business when the game is ready for beta testing.
Linda writes short and long fiction in multiple genres, including fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and thriller. She is president of the Northern Virginia Writers Club, and a member of the Chesapeake Chapter of Sisters in Crime.
