Linda Smaligo

Linda Smaligo is a retired graphic designer who had the privilege of working with writers for many years on various publications at Fairfield University in Connecticut. From Connecticut, she moved to the Chicago area, and then to Park City, Utah — 8 years ago. She is a proud mother of three – Nicholas, age 36, (who is seriously trying to change the world and doing a good job of it), Andrew, age 30, who is feeling the effects of the pandemic first-hand as a waiter who lost his job mid March and has yet to collect an unemployment check, and a daughter, Paige, who is a senior in high school and finishing her year as a Zoom student. In wonderful, Writers on the Range style, despite being published, Linda asserts, “I’m certainly not a writer!” Yet, her fans who emailed us beg to differ.
