Love, lust, and family secrets: Linda K. Sienkiewicz writes fiction about ordinary people on extraordinary journeys of self-discovery.
Big News! My novel, IN THE CONTEXT OF LOVE, will be published in 2015 by BuddhaPuss Ink LLC:
Is it ever too late to find your path in life—to leave your past and the secrets that haunt you behind? Can a first love, once lost, then found again, become true and lasting? These are the questions at the heart of Linda Sienkiewicz’s IN THE CONTEXT OF LOVE.
Angelica Schirrick is all grown up and wondering how her life could have gotten so far off track. Recently divorced from her felon husband, their two children in tow, Angelica begins a journey of self-discovery that leads her back home to Ohio. Jacquelyn Mitchard, best-selling author of DEEP END OF THE OCEAN, says: “With humor and tenderness, but without blinking, Linda K. Sienkiewicz turns her eye on the predator-prey savannah of the young and still somehow hopeful.” A Midwesterner herself, Sienkiewicz easily transports the reader to the land of kielbasa and pierogies, the Great Lakes, ever-changing weather, and its residents who like to believe their emotions are always under control.
“Linda’s writing is arresting. She grabs you on page one and pulls you through the story with speed, never once losing her grip on your attention,” says MaryChris Bradley, Publisher at Buddhapuss Ink. “Her work is a worthy addition to our rapidly growing list and we’re delighted to have her with us.”
“Linda K. Sienkiewicz’s short story, ‘Family Secrets,’ is a gem of comic action and pacing, with a handful of characters, one shadier than the next.” – Joan Silverman, Portland Press Herald
“Linda has a special talent for finding the surprising detail that brings a character to life.” – Author Michael C. White, BEAUTIFUL ASSASSIN
“Linda K. Sienkiewicz’s chapbook, Security, is powerful and arresting, an exploration of the violence of living. Through precise detail and fully realized moments, the poems of Security interrogate survival and the everyday, and the relationships that make up human experience…” – Callista Buchen at PRICK OF THE SPINDLE
