Linda adapted the New York Times Bestseller, ‘I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter’ into a feature film for Anonymous Content, the same production company that did ‘The Revenant’ and ‘Spotlight.’ She has written for Nickelodeon on their hit TV show ‘The Loud House’ including an episode featuring the Casagrandes.
