Hello, my name is Linda Cook and I recently retired from a 45-year career in the communications and public affairs profession.
I’m a native Kansan, a Kansas State University Wildcat with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communications and a Massachusetts Institute of Technology Beaver with a master’s in business administration. I spent most of my career at General Motors in Detroit, MI., where I oversaw communications and public affairs.
About 10 years ago, I returned to Kansas to be closer to family and cap off my career as chief of staff and director of community relations at K-State.
My early writing career included reporting for a weekly newspaper, writing articles for local magazines and creating advertising copy. As my career advanced, my writing included executive speeches, news releases, newsletters, brochures, video scripts and web content.
I look forward to engaging in the many opportunities offered through the Kansas Authors Club and focusing my future writing on fiction and nonfiction, including short stories and a book or two.
