Meet The Author
Born and raised in Rhode Island, Linda Herron knows firsthand what it is like to grow up as an identical twin. In fact, the most wonderful part of her childhood was spending time with her best friend and twin sister.
Because Linda recognizes the unique bond—and the unique challenges—that being a twin entails, she was inspired to create a series of children’s stories about being an identical twin. Her book series name is Twins Mac & Madi. … When she isn’t writing children’s books, Linda spends some of her time writing business articles and blogs. As a Financial expert, she provides strategic advice that transforms businesses by boosting profitability. Her financial advice has been featured on media outlets including American Express, LendingTree, and Daily Business News, and she holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Bryant University.
Today, Linda lives in California and enjoys the sunny, seventy-five-degree weather every day. Though her twin still lives in Rhode Island, they visit each other to spend time together.
Mac and Madi are twins, which means they have the same smile, hair, and even the same birthday! But this year, they want to do something different - something that will show the world they like being the same, but they also like being different too.
