About D. Linn


Author + Encourager

Hello–welcome, and thank you for visiting today!

I’m D. Linn Whorley, the founder of OneChild1, TinyDon Publications and the author of What I want my Child to Know . . . A Mother’s Loving Advice, a handy (teen / young adult) reference guide, written to facilitate a healthy understanding and subsequent avoidance of the pitfalls associated with living everyday life, to help and accompany young adults on their journey through discovery, and shape a wonderful future. 

I am also a freelance writer and editor, and occasionally provide input to aspiring authors. My interests (obviously) are child development and providing guidance for new parents. I also write poetry and blog when I can find the time.

I live with my husband and our toy poodle—who shares our enthusiasm for living her absolute BEST life!😂

Let’s connect on Social Media today!

13. We’ve traveled to Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, Germany, Paris, Italy, Bahamas, Dubai, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and many other wonderful places—but I’m most happiest curled up in bed with a good book or watching a classic “Old Hollywood” film!
