About the Author, Linda K. Hubalek

Linda Hubalek with 4-H steer, 1965.In sixth grade we had to write a paper on what we wanted to do when we grew up. My mom had kept it and I found this paper while cleaning through my closet during my college days. According to my dreams back then, I wanted to be a farmer, but my last line was “but alas, girls can’t be farmers”.
But, I got my Bachelors Degree in Agriculture and Horticulture from Kansas State University, did agronomy research for years before starting a wholesale horticulture business. My company, Prairie Flower Creations, grew and dried flowers, ornamental corn, and mini pumpkins for the florist trade.
In 1990 I was featured in Country Woman Magazine, but at the same time, my husband’s job was transferred to California. I sold my business and tried to cope, growing flowers and pumpkins in five-gallon buckets on our “cement lawn”.
I started writing about the family and farmland I was homesick for and started a new career, writing about pioneer women ancestors who had moved to the new state of Kansas and farmed its land.
We eventually moved back to Kansas, bought land next to my family, raised bison and have a garden again. So not only have I fulfilled my dream to be a farmer, I’ve written about past pioneer women that have also tilled the prairie land of Kansas.
