“Linda Mason Hunter is a rare writer -- someone who’s helped create great-selling books and is a pleasure to work with. As an editor, I can say that finding these qualities together is not as easy as I’d like it to be.” - Benjamin Allen, Executive Editor, Meredith Corporation.


Linda's first book, The Healthy Home: An Attic-to-Basement Guide to Toxin-Free Living (Rodale Press, 1989) gained immediate press and public attention. A favorable review in The New York Times called the book "a sort of Whole Earth Catalog for the home," leading to multiple national media appearances, including a feature on "Good Morning, America" broadcast nationally.

Formerly an editor with The Des Moines Register, Rodale Press, and Meredith Corporation, Linda travelled the U.S. supervising photo shoots and searching for stories about houses, architects, and designers. She has freelanced for the past 30 years, winning national awards for feature writing and publishing in-depth articles about living in balance with nature. In 1994 she founded Healthy Home Designs marketing architect-designed home plans with blueprints and eco-specifications. One of these was featured in an 8-part television series on the PBS show “Hometime.”

Linda has written and produced 17 books (including Green Clean, a classic in its genre), two yearly desktop calendars with an eco-tip for every day of the week, and a six-page laminated study guide to green cleaning. In 2012, under the name Ink Pinn Press, she and Suzanne Summersgill published a children's book, Three Green Rats, An Eco Tale, printed on forest certified paper in plant-based inks, winner of two national awards and published in Korean. Linda hosts “The Green Zone” daily on KFMG 98.9 FM, Des Moines’ award-winning low power radio station. When not in her garden or kayaking in the Johnstone Strait, she is busily at work writing a memoir about growing up with a stutter.
