Description

Gossip is the civilized version of grooming each other for fleas. You can stop gossip with a simple, "That's none of your business." but why would you? Somewhere in our deep past we remember when cavemen gossiped over the a recent kill, memorializing the one that didn't hold up their end of the kill. Stories begun by gossip are a significant channel of informal communication with something like 70% accuracy. The stories gathered here began life within 10 miles of Carleton Place. Linda guesses that makes them 50% accurate. Gossip-born stories, sharing standard currency of human connection, will make you smile, then you can pass them along, adding your own layers to make them even more spectacular

About Linda Seccaspina

Linda Seccaspina was born about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7. After she wrote her own obituary in 2010 when Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died, people told her she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadillac in Ottawa. The Ottawa Citizen newspaper labeled her "The Maiden of Death" even though they had no clue why and she has had to deal with the rumours for years. Linda has published five books and blogs here and there and on Bubblews and Open Salon. She has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she published her obituary, most people assume she's already dead.
