About Linda Harkey

Linda Harkey’s inspiration is to present teachable tales to elementary children on the lives on hunting dogs and other animals in nature.

Harkey loves dogs and loves teaching children. Her experiences as a mother, school teacher, volunteer docent, and hunting dog owner have inspired her to write the award-winning children’s book series, Hickory Doc’s Tales (The Pack: First Generation).

For over 22 years she diligently worked as a volunteer docent at two outstanding museums in Oklahoma – The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and The Thomas Gilcrease Institute of American History and Art. During her tenure, she helped develop curricula for children’s programs and gave countless presentations to children both at the museums and local schools.
