Linda Luisa Varela Tychsen is a Spanish citizen born of a Danish mother in Chicago, Illinois. She’s lived 19 years in Spain, 18 years in the USA, 10 years in the UK and not quite two yet in the Netherlands. Qualifications include a BA in English Literature from the University of Illinois, a Law degree from NIU, an MBA from IEDE in Madrid, and a slew of smaller certifications that seemed to make her truly unemployable in Madrid; which inspired her first published tome: SPANISH ANGST (2006): a high concept comedy about the difficulties of making it in the working world.
A writer from childhood with some performance in her past, recordings and other excerpts of her banter can be seen on the website www.spanishangst.com; including a short script in English about getting dumped and a link to her blog http://www.varelatychsen.info/blog/. That short script was the departure point for this second work about the pain of love and how one woman dealt with it; or didn’t until it was time to bury the torch: The Torch Bearer´s Exorcism.
She lives with two dogs.
