About

Linda McHenry

Linda McHenry is a novelist and freelance writer. She writes every day, something she doesn’t plan on changing anytime soon!

Writing is just part of who Linda is rather than a chosen profession. Her need to write has led her to pen and publish all types of material. Linda’s publishing credits include a mystery, a nonfiction book, short stories, dozens of magazine articles, a monthly business newspaper column, and hundreds of insurance continuing education course texts and webinars.

Linda also teaches insurance continuing education webinars and classroom courses. Find her current schedule on the Events and Classes page of the website.

Linda’s Fiction/Nonfiction

Linda’s first mystery, Second Time Around, was nominated for a 2010 EPIC Award in the Best Mystery/Suspense category. The publisher passed away and the novel went out of print. Linda will republish it in the future.

Her next book, Taking the Mystery out of Business, was originally published in 2011. The Director of Career Advancement, College of Business, at the University of Montana (Missoula) hailed it as “an arsenal of tools and resources to help managers and their businesses succeed.” Linda updated the book and republished it in 2020. It is currently available on Amazon.

Linda’s short story, Mama, placed 15th in the the 17th Annual Writer’s Digest Short, Short Story Competition. One of more than 4,000 entries, Mama appears in the Competition Compilation as one of the top 25 stories published.

Linda’s Insurance Publications

The majority of Linda’s published words have appeared in the insurance industry as insurance continuing education (CE) texts, webinars, and classroom courses.

Over the years, Linda has worked for more than a dozen different insurance CE providers. Collectively, they published several hundred courses that she developed and wrote. When Linda lived in Montana (2003-2011) she established Faulkner Education Services, which operated as an insurance CE provider in multiple states, including Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Wyoming. Linda developed and wrote the entire curriculum for Faulkner Education Services.
