227: Inspirational Indie Author Interview #55: Interview with Lynda Edwards — Dreams of Jamaica Create ‘Redemption Songs’
My guest this week is Lynda Edwards, an indie author who left her childhood home of Jamaica long ago, but whose writing is still flavored with the culture and magic of the Caribbean. Not too long ago, Lynda woke up from a vivid nightmare about the land of her birth, and she had no choice but to write it down. The result was her debut novel, Redemption Songs. This is the story of Lynda’s journey.
Every week I interview a member of ALLi to talk about their writing and what inspires them, and why they are inspiring to other authors.
