Linda Gillard

Linda Gillard now lives in the Highlands, on the Black Isle. She has also lived on the Isle of Arran and spent six years on the Isle of Skye.
She graduated from Bristol University and trained as an actress at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. For eight years she pursued an acting career, the highlight of which was appearing on stage at the National Theatre with Geraldine McEwan, TV's Miss Marple. The lowlight was playing a fairy for four rainy months in an open-air production of A Midsummer Night's Dream at Regent's Park.
Whilst under-employed at the National Theatre, Linda accidentally became a freelance journalist and wrote light-hearted articles for magazines, many based on her semi-self-sufficient "Good Life" in rural Cambridgeshire. For twelve years she had a humorous column in IDEAL HOME about family life. (Her children, now adult, are still trying to live it down.)
Linda ran her two careers concurrently for a while, then decided to give up acting to focus on journalism and raising a family. At the age of 40 she re-trained as a primary teacher and taught in Norfolk specialising in English and Art. She decided to re-think her career yet again after she was assaulted by a disturbed pupil.
The re-think entailed giving up teaching and downshifting to Skye, realising a long-held dream to move to the Highlands and write full-time. For six years Linda lived on a hillside overlooking the Cuillins, a mountain range featured in her first novel, EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY.

LINDA GILLARD: HEARTS AND CRAFTS AND INDEPENDENCE
...
I've just finished EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY, the third of Linda Gillard's novels I've read and enjoyed - the others being HOUSE OF SILENCE and UNTYING THE KNOT.
...
Linda writes about imperfection: her characters are always human and frequently haunted (in UNTYING THE KNOT literally so). Her writing veers from high comedy to pathos to tragedy and back again. Her stories are sustained by the beauty of the descriptions of the landscapes and by the vigour of the sparky dialogue. She is popular because women, grown-up women, are her focus - and grown-up women are looking for grown-up books which will engage them and satisfy them. Commentators on Facebook even weigh up which of her heroes, her imperfect yet chivalrous heroes, is their favourite.
