Linda Allison is a recovering banker, attempting to be what she always said she would be when she grew up: a writer. Linda lives in The Woodlands, Texas, with the love of her life, where together they’re trying to figure out this retired thing. Her work has appeared in McQueen’s Quinterly, Star 82 Review, and Pile Press. She was recently awarded first place in the Emerging Writers category of the League of Utah Writers annual Olive Woolley Burt writing contest. In the spirit of life-long learning, Linda will be entering an MFA program at Lindenberg University in the fall.
