About the Author:

If it has to do with homes or decorating, Linda Hallam has the answers. As editor of decorating and design books for Better Homes and Gardens ® Books since 1996, she has written and edited 17 decorating, design, and remodeling books.

Before joining Better Homes and Gardens® Books, Linda was an editor at Southern Living magazine for 12 years, where she wrote a popular Home Tips column, as well as feature articles on interiors and architecture. Even her earliest writing, as a real estate reporter for The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Mississippi, was home centered. She produced an award-winning weekly real estate section for the paper, emphasizing consumer news and architecture. Throughout her writing career, Linda has been able to stay in touch with the needs of readers.

Meanwhile, Linda put to personal use what she was researching and writing. She and her husband, Steve, raised two sons and owned four older homes, each needing TLC to make it a home. Plus, being a working mother meant streamlining tasks to fit everything into doable routines. Linda's suggestions, observations, and real-life experiences shine through the pages of this and her other books.

Linda's books have been highlighted in major newspapers and magazines throughout the country, and she has appeared on national television cable shows, including Christopher Lowell (Discovery) and Home Matters (Discovery).
