My name is Linda Fleming, author, and artist.  I was born and raised in Sanford, Maine; in 1986, I began writing a journal, and in 1994, I renamed the journal Reflections. It was in 1998 that reflections turned into stories.  It started when I wrote Crossroads, a 365-day devotional.  My themes include politics, everyday life situations, pain, sorrow, addiction, and Christianity.  It covers everyday trials and the reality of real-life situations in the world.  My qualifications and experience are I’ve been writing since 1986.  My only award was with, and 20 of my poems were featured in The Poets Speak, An Anthology published in 1907 by William Manson, who ran a site for poetry writers and a second ‘Dance of the Poets’ in 2008.  In 2016 my first book was published ‘Poetry in Motion.’  In 2022 my website was developed.  Besides writing, I love to create cards, bookmarks, and pictures with pressed flowers from the gardens around the farm between 2000 and 2006.  I love to garden, cook, paint rocks, eat out with family and friends, play with my fur babies, and share the Gospel. I love spending time with family and friends. I love to study scripture and get lost on the road to Damascus with Saul or pray with Daniel while in the lion’s den.  Oh, to walk with Jesus, following and listening.  When I develop my characters for a story, I can get lost in who they are, and what truth of God I want to convey through them to my readers.  One of my books is about three generations of women who work together to resolve conflict among themselves or the one where God deals with my character fiction from 1836 dealing with the women’s suffrage movement. My passion is in my job as a caregiver.  I love to paint, watercolor, oil, and acrylic.  Recently, I painted a picture of a woman who represents patriotism; I love painting nature and pictures that bring peace, like my boats on calm seas and shacks on the waterfront or in the mountains.  My pressed flowers began on the farm.  I couldn’t work for ten years, but the farm brought me much peace, that peace was from God.
