Ida Linehan Young
First and foremost, Ida Linehan Young is a grandmother to the most extraordinary little boys, Parker and Samuel, a mother to three adult children, Sharon, Stacey, and Shawna, and a wife to Thomas. By day she works in the information technology sector in the federal government and has recently forayed into learning the French language in the hopes of becoming bilingual. She started writing several years ago and published her memoir, No Turning Back: Surviving the Linehan Family Tragedy, in 2014, followed by a novel, Being Mary Ro, in 2018. Influenced by her love of local history and the familial art of storytelling passed down by her father and her maternal grandfather, she escapes to writing any chance she can get. She enjoys writing historical fiction to keep the past alive for generations to come.Facebook, Twitter: @idalinehanyoung
