About Us

The Author

First as a Child and Youth Worker in children’s mental health settings and later as a qualified teacher, Linda Briden has worked with children and youth from elementary to college level classrooms. Linda considers education to be an optimistic, lifelong venture and believes in the importance of varying modes of instruction to meet the needs of all learners. The book "Know Me" is the realization of Linda's life long belief that "I have a children's book in me somewhere!"  With a keen commitment to the issue of children's mental health, Linda hopes that "Know Me" will promote sharing, break down barriers to communication and build relationships especially for children who feel marginalized or misunderstood. 

When purchased directly from Linda, 10% of each book sale will be donated to a children's charity.  Our current charity is Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada.  For more information on this organization and the great work they do, visit: www.bgccan.com
