Lynda Levy

Lynda Levy is a retired psychologist and life coach. After 30+ years living in Los Angeles, she recently moved to Phoenix to be close to family and is now (sort of) adjusting to the open spaces and thinner air of the desert.

Lynda has been in writing classes and workshops with every writing guru in Los Angeles and will continue to try to learn from others while knowing that no one else can tell you what you have to say. When she's not writing Lynda is cooking, reading, studying Italian, watching films, or traveling.
