Western Author Gregg Edwards Townsley asked me to do an interview and I was happy to do so, as I always enjoy doing interviews.
Meet author Linda Pendleton, author of more than a dozen fiction
and nonfiction books, and the wife of the late action-adventure writer,
Gregg: Linda, thanks for being the first of our interviews on The Writers Edge. You’re an accomplished artist and writer, and a businesswoman too,
judging by what I see online. Your books, websites, your late husband’s
books and the possibility of a few movies — can I ask you what motivates
you to create? Is it the muse or the mortgage?
Linda: I write because I love to write and have a desire to
satisfy my creative drive. I enjoy the inspirational flow and passion I
feel as my creativity is expressed on the written page,
and I enjoy sharing it. I have been told that some of my readers have
found my nonfiction writing to be not only inspirational, but healing
and comforting. As a writer, that is always so nice to hear and it warms
A writer has to be a business person as well as a writer.
Writing is only part of the game. In the past, it was finding agents,
publishers, and wasting a lot of time. I now self-publish, thanks to
Amazon Kindle and Createspace. But I also have my husband’s body of work
to manage, in addition to ours, and my own. So a writer’s work is not
done when he or she writes “The End.”
