Linda Imbler is the author of three published poetry collections, "Big Questions, Little Sleep," "Lost and Found," and "The Sea’s Secret Song" which is an e-book published by Soma Publishing. Her new e-book "Pairings" is now available. It is also to be published by Soma Publishing. "Pairings" is a collection of short fiction pieces and each story is loosely coupled with one of Linda’s poems. Since writing her first poem for publication almost four years ago, she has had her poetry and short fiction published in numerous national and international journals and dozens of anthologies. In addition to putting pen and paper to inventive use, Linda is an avid reader and budding illustrator, Yoga and Tai Chi practitioner, stargazer, and classical guitar player. She lives in Wichita, Kansas with her husband, Mike the Luthier, several quite intelligent saltwater fish, and an ever-growing family of gorgeous guitars which she helps Mike build. She feels honored and very humbled to have been nominated in 2017 for the Pushcart Prize for her poem "Ensorcelled Within the Moonlit Eyes of P’aqo" and twice in 2018 for Best of the Net for her poems "Guitar" and "The Value of Shadows."
