Linda Hoye is on the other side of a twenty-five-year corporate career. Now a writer, photographer, gardener, and somewhat-fanatical grandma, she lives in Kamloops, British Columbia with her husband and their doted-upon Yorkshire Terrier. She was a finalist in the Susan Wittig Albert LifeWriting Competition in 2009, and her essays have been included in two anthologies—Still Me…After All These Years (2017) and Inside and Out (2017)—as well as other publications in Canada and the United States. Her memoir Two Hearts: An Adoptee’s Journey Through Grief to Gratitude was published in 2012. Find her online at www.lindahoye.com.
