Tending the Marsh is now available



My new book "Tending the Marsh" is now available for purchase. I am so grateful to so many for the love and support in its completion.  Please visit Amazon to order a copy or visit me at local and upcoming events where I will have copies of the book. 

Advance Praise for Tending the Marsh by Linda Maria Steele


 "In Linda Steele's new book of verse she observes nature to get outside of herself through a lens of marshes, hawks, and even a pedestrian mouse. She is a walker, and like in Alfred Kazin's memoir "A Walker in the City," her travels give vivid insights to the reader, as she takes a slow gait along her well- trodden path." 

Doug Holder/ Lecturer in Creative Writing Endicott College/Publisher of Ibbetson Street Press


“Reading Tending the Marsh felt as if an angel had silently brushed past me, whispering words of hope and love and joy.  The poems are an invitation to open one's eyes and take in all the extraordinary beauty in the natural world.”

Jamie Cat Callan/author of “Parisian Charm School”


“Eloquent, moving and soul-stirring, each poem from Tending the Marsh is like a beautiful, unique seashell. This collection is a gem; delight in its treasures.”
 Renee Peterson Trudeau, speaker/author, “Nurturing the Soul of Your Family: 10 Ways to Find Peace & Harmony in Everyday Life.”

“In Tending the Marsh, Steele’s eloquent words beckon us to journey through the marsh with her as she shares the pain and the joys of her passage towards a new and meaningful normal. Her introspective poems give us a peek into her life while giving us space to reflect on our own transitions, challenges, and triumphs.”

Trisha Faye, publisher of the anthologies In Celebration of Mothers, In Celebration of Sisters, and Mothers of Angels
