    Linda Ellis started writing poems as a child, a talent inherited from her Irish grandmother. She grew up in Florida and then lived in New York for several years. However, her southern roots kept calling her home so she settled in Georgia where she now lives with her family and a menagerie of pets. She spent years working in the corporate world, but after her first poem was shared on a syndicated radio program in 1994, an alternative career began to emerge and she soon came to the realization that her true passion was in creative writing.


    Since there was no promotion or raise received from her boss could ever equal the satisfaction she felt when she would hear from those whose hearts had been touched by her words, she made the decision to leave the corporate world behind to pursue her dream, inspiring others through her writing. Linda focuses on writing about real life, including all of its joys and sorrows. Thus, as each new phase of her life is experienced, so are new feelings, thoughts and ideas that she feels compelled to express through her works.


    Her work has been featured in best-selling books and magazines such as Family Circle, US News and World Report, Natural Awakenings Magazine, WOW Professional Performance, Leatherneck Magazine, Natural Awakenings Magazine, and various other major publications. Her poems have also appeared on C-SPAN, FOX TV (FOX 4), ABC News (News 10), CBS News (KLASTV), NBC (WXIA) and on hundreds of radio programs, including Radio Delilah.


    Her most famous poem to date is THE DASH, which has been enjoyed by millions over the last 14 years. The Dash poem is responsible for changing attitudes and subsequently, millions of lives around the world.

    The Dash Poem by Linda Ellis | Posted August 09, 2014
    The pastor of our church read The Dash in a sermon last month and we we posted his sermon on our church blog in a newsletter. Linda Ellis wrote a letter to him and accused him of copyright infringement. We took up a special offering and paid her $4000. How said that someone who claims to be a Christian author would do such a horrible thing. I believe God inspired our pastor to share her words. We are all extremely upset and want to speak about it, but we've been asked not too. The author made him sign a confidentiality agreement. All the Baptist preachers need to be very careful and warn our brethren to stop reading this poem in church and at funerals. After he paid her he found out that this is a scheme to get money from preachers and pastors.
