titlting the kilt
I had a few phone calls today from people looking for my book in Carleton Place for Mother’s Day.

* Please note that it cannot be ordered by a private store.*

BUT, it is available and can be ordered on all forms of Amazon .. Amazon Canada as well as Amazon US ETC.

AND, IT CAN BE PURCHASED IN CARLETON PLACE.
My loyal local followers can find all of my books for sale, both at Wisteria at 62 Bridge Street, and The Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum at 267 Edmund Street. In the event you find that too exhausting, you can email me and I will deliver one to you.

Gossip is the civilized version of grooming each other for fleas. You can stop gossip with a simple, “That’s none of your business.” but why would you? Somewhere in our deep past we remember when cavemen gossiped over the a recent kill, memorializing the one that didn’t hold up their end of the kill. Stories begun by gossip are a significant channel of informal communication with something like 70% accuracy. The stories gathered here began life within 10 miles of Carleton Place. Linda guesses that makes them 50% accurate. Gossip-born stories, sharing standard currency of human connection, will make you smile, then you can pass them along, adding your own layers to make them even more spectacular.

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
