Linda Summer is a storyteller whose favourite words are ‘truth heals.’ She loves writing compelling true stories and exploring advanced realms of healing, science and spirit. She holds diplomas in journalism, writing, book editing and publishing and is a perpetual student of indigenous wisdom, medicine and ancient shamanic healing arts.
Known in some circles as the Word Police and Master Blahbologist, Linda has developed a nifty niche for simplifying complex subjects by using bamboozle-free language.
- Television taught her to write succinct media releases and tell compelling stories in thirty-second promo scripts.
- Radio taught her how to write imaginative stories with words, music and sound effects.
- Media Monitoring taught her how to precis live radio and television interviews (and type seriously fast).
- Her seven-year stint with South Australia Police taught her the finer art of writing ‘corporate speak’ including ministerials, high-level reports, department policies and procedures. She also unearthed an ability to transform technical gobbledygook language into step by step, easy to follow training documents.
- As a writer with the Australian Spirit project team in 2018, she brushed up on her corporate writing skills and also enjoyed experimenting with social media content creation.
- Linda is currently honing her screenwriting skills and has several projects in the pipeline.
Linda wrote her first words at the age of three thanks to her word-loving mother and has been playing with words ever since. She made her television debut on Romper Room School as a four-year-old ‘Good Do Bee,’ won her first book review prize at seven and scrap-booked her first letter to the editor of ‘The News’ at nine. Linda also penned poems, ballads, plays and short stories throughout her teens and became the first published poet in Adelaide University magazine On Dit.
Linda believes there is always a light at the end of the tunnel when you know where to look and enjoys her role as a co-creator of a happier, healthier world
