Episode Info: Linda Naseem has been a writer all her life, but it is only in the past few years that she has started seriously putting words to paper. She was raised as an “Army brat”, packing up and moving every couple years. The habit of not staying put has followed her into adulthood, with Sweden and Nigeria being among the places she has called home. Last year she published her first novel, NOTHING, a story of meth addiction and its effect on the addict’s loved ones.
