About The Author

Linda McCain is the author of the 2019 released book "One Bad Decision" reviewed as a compelling drama and having an impressive and fairly complex plot by Online Book Club (see official review at Read further reviews on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Linda's love for writing started and increased while in college where she majored in Secretarial Science and wrote poetry in her spare time. It was also while in college that she submitted her first article to Essence Magazine on "The Cruelty of Child Abuse". My Father, My Son, a book that celebrates and validates the strength of family, the importance of loyalty in friendship, the benefits of unwavering perseverance in the face of tragedy, and the fact that teenagers are a gift when taught to excel from infancy (Bray, Jermaine, Dylan, Noel, TJ, and Ellis) gives testimony to this fact! Linda is currently working on her third book, a children's book, entitled "Good night Mr. White". My Father, My Son is due for release in 2020 ( just a few months away, so stay tuned for the official release date). Be cautious, Be alert, Be well!
