Introduction for LindaJM
Hi there! I'm Linda Jo Martin, also known as the Book Lady on YouTube. I'm a writer living in Northern Idaho near Lake Coeur d'Alene. I've been earning my living as a writer (mostly via the internet) since 2008.
I've published only one of my novels so far: "River Girl" - a story about a young girl who moved from the San Francisco Bay area to the Klamath River Valley around 1920. The book is intended for girls ages eight through fifteen, though most of the reviews I've seen are from adults who enjoyed the book.
My hobbies include my YouTube channel, reading, and bike riding. I don't own a car so my main mode of transportation is walking; fortunately, I enjoy it.
My favorite foods are all vegetarian, such as rice pasta al pesto or tofu with vegetables. I avoid sugar most of the time. I tend to go on strict diets every now and then, such as the lemonade diet (Master Cleanser) and the candida diet which lasts a minimum of three months.
I'm 62 this year and health maintenance is important to me, especially since I need to be able to keep walking. Life is fun for me. I struggled many years with inconsistent relationships, raising children as a single mother, and poverty - but now my children are all adults and I live in a very nice apartment built for seniors 55+.
I've been in Idaho only a year but have found new friends who I trust and value. I've traveled around the United States and found that people in Idaho are among the friendliest in the nation. I'm glad I retired to this state.
