Ida Linehan Young

I live in Conception Bay South in the majestically beautiful province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. I am fiercely proud to have been born and raised a Newfoundlander. I’ve been married for over 30 years, I am a mother of three beautiful girls, Sharon, Stacey and Shawna, and a grandmother of two extraordinary little boys, Parker and Samuel. I work in a job that I love in the information technology sector of the federal government. I also love to explore my imagination with a pen in my hand.

My choice of genre is influenced by my love of local history and the familial art of storytelling passed down by my father, Edward Linehan, and my maternal grandfather, Frank Power. I enjoy researching the history of my beloved birthplace and writing historical fiction that will keep the past alive for generations to come. I am extremely blessed to have so much wonderful support from my family, friends, and the reading audience. The encouragement from my readership is what keeps me writing.
