Linda Dorrington is a marketing and communications specialist born and raised in South Africa. She studied journalism before immigrating to Canada with her Zimbabwean husband twenty years ago. Since then, she has worked primarily in the diamond and gold industries, developing marketing strategies, copy writing, liaising with media, and managing international brands, all while raising three daughters. In recent years, Linda has rediscovered her artistic side. When she is not writing, she paints in oils.
