Biography

Linda Hewitt, a native of Alabama, attended Birmingham-Southern College, the University of Alabama, Georgia Tech, and Georgia State University. She holds a B.A. and M.A. in Economic History. She began writing when she was three--her first work was a notebook of observations about her grandparents’ home. She edited various school newspapers in grade school, high school, and college, and wrote her graduate thesis on the political and economic implications of German Reparations stipulated in treaties following the First World War. With her husband Robert, she was partner in Hewitt & Hewitt, Inc., an Atlanta public relations boutique serving major corporations. She consults on communications strategy and has been responsible for award-winning campaigns on safety, health, right-to-know, workplace violence, insurance, and motivation and productivity across corporate populations. Her nonfiction titles deal with a wide range of topics, mostly cultural and economic. Several were book-club selections and have been used as supplemental reading in undergraduate cultural-history courses.  Her professional memberships include The Authors Guild and the American Historical Association. Her latest ventures are a Substack newsletter Margaret And Her Muse and an Amazon Kindle Vella story Stevie & The Boss, Forever. Margaret's a teenaged girl deciding whether to become a writer even as she deals with divorcing parents, a faithless boyfriend, and a new school she thinks is out to get her. Stevie's a successful thirty-something about-to-be officer who with her company's CEO, The Boss, goes down in a corporate jet only to find herself - together with The Boss - back at headquarters, only this time as a ghost.
