Fan Page Friday

 Author Linda Leigh Hargrove - Linda Leigh Hargrove is a native of the Blacklands of North Carolina, a farm-rich portion of the northeastern corner of the state. Linda uses her southern roots as a springboard for many of her writings. She enjoys writing essays and fiction that include the personality of the state she loves.

Never one to let words like 'underprivileged black girl' define her, young Linda read constantly. That is, when she wasn't exploring the backwoods of Creswell, North Carolina with her two older sisters, lots of cousins, and a' plenty other animals. Creswell, dubbed a quaint farming village in the lower Dismal swamp, made her into a lover of words and color. One of many creative Leigh women, Linda also knits, crochets, and paints.

After graduating from North Carolina State University with a Masters in Agricultural Engineering, she worked for over four years as an environmental engineer for the State of North Carolina. That position gave her the chance to experience the character, humor, and bigness of the nation, but especially that of her favorite state.

Linda lives near Charlotte with her husband and three sons. She is a freelance web designer and consultant, and dreams of returning to engineering.
