Linda Ravin Lodding
Linda Ravin Lodding is the author of the Hold That Thought, Milton! (illustrated by Ross Collins) and Oskar's Perfect Present (illustrated by Alison Jay) both from Gullane Children's Books, London. Ms. Lodding is originally from New York, but has spent the past 15 years in Sweden, Austria, and now the Netherlands. Today she lives in a windmill with her wonderful husband and daughter (who is, at times, as busy as Ernestine) and their sometimes-dog Nino (who speaks Dutch, Swedish, Spanish, and a smattering of English).
