Maxine Linnell's lifelong passion for writing has been consistently interrupted by life making other plans. She is a Buddhist psychotherapist and trainer, and her ear for dialogue has been tuned by years of active listening.
In her spare time she works in health promotion, edits a psychology magazine, sings and is steward of a magical garden in Leicester. She also had a hand in bringing Kate and Benn into the world and on to adulthood.
Meanwhile she is working on a radio play and a full-length stage play. "Thanks a Lot Elton" was born during a ten day workshop in Writing for Performance in Barnstaple, North Devon, and the earlier, less dark version of it was performed by North Devon College students as well as Taunton Amateur Dramatic Society in the Somerset One-Act Play Competition in 1999. Elton's most recent production was in Leicester, directed by Dana Bagshaw with Laurie Cusack and Helen Lynch.
