Biography and Publication History Lin Weich
I recently retired from teaching and live with my husband Brian in Quesnel, British Columbia. My journey through life has taken me from England to Africa and throughout Canada. I received my Bachelor of Education from the University of Victoria and have taught in various urban and rural schools in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and British Columbia. My hobbies include wilderness camping, kayaking, traveling, reading, photography and of course writing (realistic suspense novels, short stories and freelance articles).
Writing has taken me by surprise and consumes my days. So far, I have completed three works of fiction. Strength of an Eagle was inspired by the disappearance of women along the ‘Highway of Tears’ and the drug smuggling problems in Northern B.C.. Half-Truths, Total Lies, my second novel, is a story of murder and blackmail in a rural school. Alone is the tale of two sisters isolated on Canada’s West Coast.
My kayaking adventures, teaching experiences and outdoor activities have influenced the substance and voice of my stories. I have had articles published in Our Canada, More of Our Canada and Postscript. Several photographic essays have been included in the Royal Photographic Society(Canada) on-line magazine. When I’m not busy creating stories, I enjoy travelling in both Canada and abroad.
