About Me Linda Alexander’s newest book, "Reluctant Witness: Robert Taylor, Hollywood, & Communism," is the biography of Hollywood’s Golden Era movie star, Robert Taylor, in 2nd printing as of September 2008. Taylor starred with all the leading ladies of his time, including Greta Garbo in "Camille," Vivien Leigh in "Waterloo Bridge," and Deborah Kerr in "Quo Vadis." His involvement in the 1940s hysteria over communism in Hollywood forever branded him the ultra-conservative star to “name names.” Linda’s book sets the record straight.

Linda has written 4 other books—2 biographies ("The Unpromised Land" and "Dorothy From Kansas Meets the Wizard of X"), and 2 novels of dark romantic suspense ("Until Next Time" and "Weekends in New England"). A 1991 letter on psychological child abuse put her on the Oprah Show as a Featured Guest. She has freelanced for magazines such as "Spotlight" and "Soap Opera Update," and newspapers including "The Washington Times" and "Baton Rouge Advocate." She’s interviewed many actors, including Jim Varney, Robert Stack, Michael Zaslow, and her teenage heartthrob, Michael Cole, from 1970s “The Mod Squad;” and singers: Gary Puckett, Tiny Tim, and others. An editor from a prominent publisher said, “I felt . . . I was sitting in on a Barbara Walters interview.”

The newest biography to have Linda’s name on it is due out early next year. "A Maverick Life: The Jack Kelly Story" will look into the life of popular TV star, and movie actor, Jack Kelly.

Linda speaks publicly on: Living Large With Lupus; Journaling To Heal Wounds; Bridging The Color Line; You Are Who You Say You Are: Online Imaging; writing, and, of course, Robert Taylor!
