About Linda Rosen

Since 1982, I have been a fitness professional choreographing, designing and leading exercise programs for women, men and children. As I was approaching my sixth decade, my creative side started to gnaw at me. It wanted more.  I’d always wanted to write; I had written articles for newspapers, magazines, and websites on various fitness topics, but writing fiction was my dream.

As an avid reader, I’d dreamt of penning my own novel, one that readers would devour curled up in a comfortable chair with a cup of tea – or a glass of wine, so I searched for and found a writer’s workshop in a local community school. My fingers started to fly across the keyboard, though my prose was as shaky as a toddler’s first steps. With lots of encouragement, the words soon began to flow as characters introduced themselves to me. They sat on my shoulder, whispered in my ear as I walked in the park, swam laps, or dug in my garden. They planted their feet and wouldn’t leave until I put them on paper, or to be more accurate, on screen.

The inspiration for The Disharmony of Silence came from a chat I had with my sister-in-law and a dear friend while sitting on the beach in Hilton Head Island. My sister-in-law was preparing to sell her mother's home and she didn't know what to do with the painting that had hung in the living room practically her entire life. There wasn't an empty wall in her own home to hang it and no one else in the family wanted it. Tossing the portrait or selling it to some unknown person wasn't an option, so she decided to return it to the artist... Ah ha! I thought. What a great storyline. And Disharmony was born!

I live with my husband in New Jersey, just ten miles from New York City and a few blocks from my grandsons – in the warm months – and in sunny Florida when it's too cold to stay up north.
