Linda Snow McLoon
After retiring from careers as a maritime museum director and director of a living facility for retired women, Linda Snow McLoon finally had time for a writing project that was conceived back in her “horsey days.” Her interest in horses had continued from a horse-loving girl to, as an adult, competing in horse competitions, instructing young riders, and rescuing Thoroughbred race horses from the racetrack. Her first two young adult books for horse lovers, Crown Prince and Crown Prince Challenged, were published in 2012 by Trafalgar Square Books. They have been well received by horse lovers of all ages, and Linda hopes her late entry into the world of publishing will serve as an inspiration for other “late blooming” authors. She grew up in Maine’s Belgrade Lakes Region, and minored in writing at the University of Southern Maine. Linda and her husband, Richard McLoon, live in Portland, Maine with their Arkansas rescue dog, Brandy.
