Linda Crew is the acclaimed author of Oregon Book Award winner A Heart For Any Fate, a young adult book inspired and based on the King family’s journey on the Oregon Trail. While writing A Heart For Any Fate, Linda and her husband Herb traveled the Oregon Trail and saw the great sites that protagonist Lovisa King and her family journeyed through in 1845.
A native Oregonian, Linda grew up in the historically rich city of Corvallis. After graduating from the University of Oregon with a BA in Journalism, Linda realized that her passion lay in writing fiction, not fact. Inspired by her love for pioneer stories, Linda delved into the young adult historical fiction genre, anxious to tell our history’s untold stories. Thirty-five years later, she is now the author of eight young adult titles.
Linda and Herb have three grown children and live on Wake Robin Farm, the same farm they were married on in 1974. When not working on her next novel, Linda can be found in the forest with her pruning saw. You can visit her website to learn more.
