I write because it is the core of my being, a key channel through which I can fulfill my life’s purpose and contribute my unique voice to upholding equity and love for all beings.

After a 14 year labor of love y paciencia, my memoir The Cost of our Lives is seeing the light of day!

“Linda González’s memoir, The Cost of Our Lives, deserves a place alongside our very finest stories about family and belonging. Big-spirited and with an unflinching gaze, she delves into the very heart of what it means to be family, no matter how complicated or uncomfortable the details. Her book is bold, honest, and wise. Brava!”
Cristina García, author of seven novels, including Dreaming in Cuban and the just published HERE IN BERLIN.
