|Linda Alexander is an author. Her newest book, Reluctant Witness: Robert Taylor, Hollywood, & Communism, is the biography of Hollywood Golden Era movie star, Robert Taylor. Taylor starred with leading ladies of his time, including Greta Garbo in Camille, Vivien Leigh in Waterloo Bridge, and Deborah Kerr in Quo Vadis. His involvement in the 1940s hysteria over Hollywood communism forever branded him the ultra-conservative star to “name names.” Linda’s book finally sets the record straight.
She’s published 4 other books—2 biographies and 2 novels of dark romantic suspense. A 1991 letter on psychological child abuse put her on the Oprah Show as a Featured Guest. She’s freelanced for magazines such as Spotlight and Soap Opera Update, and newspapers including The Washington Times and Baton Rouge Advocate. She’s interviewed actors Jim Varney, Robert Stack, Michael Zaslow, and her teenage heartthrob, Michael Cole, from ‘70s “The Mod Squad;” also, singers Gary Puckett, Tiny Tim, and others. Linda speaks publicly on various topics including, of course, writing and classic movie stars.
