Linda Barsi is a novelist, screenwriter, director, YouTube vlogger and mental health enthusiast. In her books and long-form scripts, Linda loves to write about characters stuck between two lives: an outwardly happy one and an inwardly miserable one (a.k.a. secretly depressed people at their breaking points).
Raised in the middle of Alaska, Linda moved to upstate New York to go to Cornell University but mostly to enjoy warmer weather. After graduating, she moved to LA where snow is optional. Linda’s been a Video Producer at BuzzFeed and has been a regular guest speaker at VidCon — the world’s largest conference for online video.
Her YouTube channel has 18,000+ subscribers and, there, she enjoys sharing fun life advice like how to find a good therapist and how to get through those dark days as a writer. She is also extremely passionate about racial and gender equality, LGBTQ+ rights, and diversity/representation in media (in front of and behind the camera).
In May 2017, Linda graduated from the University of Southern California with an MFA in Writing for Screen and Television.
Linda is currently tucked away, spending oodles of time with her majestic cross-eyed pitbull, Sally Field, and her fiancé, Casey Gullickson, as she works on finishing her first erotic fiction romance novel.
