Linda Collier Ligon started Interweave Press on her dining room table in 1975 after her third child was born. From this humble beginning her publishing company has grown to encompass seven diverse magazines and more than a hundred books in print, and from that home-based sole proprietorship to a corporation with more than 60 employees and more than 150 books in print. She is currently CEO and editorial director of Interweave Press, having handed off the presidency and other key responsibilities in late 2002. She is also president and publisher of Natural Home magazine. She is a past president of the Publishers Marketing Association. Linda lives and works in Loveland, Colorado.
