More About the Author

I was born a poor, freckled child. Now I write books about strange creatures, things and people, and sometimes illustrate them, to boot.

This is exactly what I told my 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Ione Kopitzke, I wanted to do when I grew up. I remember she replied, almost crying, "Oh Linda, I think you can do better than that." Her picture is now in the front of my book, "Strange Wisconsin: More Badger State Weirdness." Right next to freckled little me in my "L" initial blouse. That book won a bronze medal in the Independent Publishers 2008 Best Book Awards, and a Midwest Book Review's Editor's Choice. See how neatly life shakes out sometimes?

Before I started writing books, I received an art education degree from UW-Oshkosh, taught art and was a cartoonist and newspaper reporter. I live in southeast Wisconsin with my husband, youngest son and Lhasa Apso named Grendel.

You might catch me on an episode or two of HC's Monster Quest and other TV and radio shows. Check out beastofbrayroad.com for updates.

A fun, entertaining, 'coffee table' book. Lots of short articles from places all over Michigan that have interesting and odd stories.

Accurate from the standpoint of a few of the places I already knew about.

Perfect for you or your guests to spend a few minutes browsing through, reading a few articles.

This book is great. Gives a very different view of Michigan. Interesting information not found elsewhere. I want to go on a long road trip and see these places.

This book was soooooo interesting. I couldn't put it down. It seems like most of the weird things though are out of my reach as I live in south-western Michigan and a lot of the really weird stuff in in the north and far west of Michigan. Interesting, for example: Darwin Road leads to Hell. Hm . . . it really does. Darwin Road will lead you into the city of Hell, Michigan. Also, Paradise, Michigan is almost exactly 666 miles from Hell, Michigan. Wow!!! Also, we here in Brighton have known for years about the satanic cults, but reading about them in this book reinforced that. And much much more. The pictures are good too. Worth buying and reading.

My parents are transplants (into Michigan), and I thought they would enjoy this as a fun coffee table book. Almost 2 years later, I went to visit for their New Years Eve party, and the book was still on the table--and the guests enjoyed thumbing through the interesting factoids and places that they didn't even know about. Without reading it all myself, I can say that it was an effective gift and well liked.

I liked to learn about little places throughout Michigan that I might not see on a "What to do" / vacation website. Could do with less haunted stories. The sequel to this book has even more of that stuff, so I was disappointed in the sequel.

I bought this book and would have returned it had I kept the reciept and Borders had not closed. There was misinformation in the book. Locations and stories were wrong. I was turned off to the book once I had read the stories for Monroe, MI. They were incorrect. If these were wrong then I'm sure others were also. Doesn't someone do fact checking for these?

Although not something I would normally read, I picked up Weird Michigan in the library and found it a great read. It was more than entertaining on my airplane trip and I enjoyed the layout very much. I have to admit I've searched out, both electronically and in person, some of the subjects. Well written and very interesting.
