Linda Jones is an NYC actor with a “cracked wit” and a passion for words and language. She works in new plays, old plays, film, tv and voice over, and has been known to don a cocktail dress, cradle a martini and belt out ballads in a cabaret act in venues around NYC. She lives in Brooklyn with writer John C. Foster, their dog Coraline, and an apartment filled-to-bursting, floor-to-ceiling, corner-to-absolute-corner with books.
