Linda is a native New Yorker who has adopted Florida as her home for many years now. When she is not directing the program and center, she teaches and researches writing pedagogy, first year writing, and fan and media studies. Her area of research is plagiarism and digital literacies. On her down time, she likes to watch food competition shows, movies, and produce fan fiction and fan videos. She is the momma to two beautiful orange tabbies, Sam and Dean. And yes, those names are inspired by Supernatural
