Meet the Author

Linda Langwith was born on an island in the Pacific Ocean. The sea is in her blood, in her dreams and in the stories she writes. Her love of literature inspired her to complete a B.A. Honours and an M.A in English, while her passion for history has drawn her to Europe, England, Scotland and Ireland, to the places which nurtured her ancestors and in turn, nourish her imagination. It was in an old stone cottage in the wilds of Yorkshire that The Golden Crusader was first conceived and it was in Fountains Abbey that she found her crusader's effigy, quite forgotten in a corner of the ruins.

Blessed by three children and William, her husband, Linda values family life above all else. Her love of landscape gardening finds scope in their acre property where she has developed an organic market garden. She has been variously a research grants officer for a national arts foundation, a university-level academic advisor, coordinator of a community-based resource centre and currently, a freelance writer of poetry, short stories, articles, scholarly works and novels as well as a contributor to three American cookbooks.

    The Golden Crusader

    Homecoming for Gemma Ravenscroft is bitter and bittersweet. She did not miss her father in her life but sadly missed the last years of her grandmothers life. She is hoping the cottage left to her by her grandmother will be a retreat from a world she never felt she belonged to while she works on her book. Gemma can't seem to stay out of trouble and is almost immediately is taken in hand by the local doctor and a sea captain whose competition for her affections is often trying. However, add a ghost to that mix and you have a whole new situation. All three are willing to risk much to protect her when it turns out she has enemies. Their main concern is who will she choose. Some locals blame her for her father's removal from their church and other, newer, enemies are smugglers who want her gone from the cozy cottage above the sea cove. A fun mixture of romance, mystery, paranormal and fantasy, it is with pleasure I recommend The Golden Crusader by talented author Linda Langwirth who has crafted a multi-faceted tale to grab and hold your attention. Guaranteed to satisfy any romantic at heart or mystery buff. Enjoy. I sure did.

    A fascinating paranormal amateur sleuth mystery

    Though she mourns the loss of her grandmother, Gemma Ravenscroft looks forward to returning to her homeland in England after years of living in Canada. She especially looks forward to living in Temple Cottage, the house near the sea that she inherited, as that is the only place that has ever felt like home to Gemma.---------------------- Though her car gets mud-bound, Gemma feels that the return is near perfect when she meets Dr. Alex MacRae, who seems as attracted to her as she is to him. However, as she sails in her boat, a storm leaves her in a precarious situation until Coast Guard Captain Max Jennings rescues her. He is attracted to Gemma just like the physician is. Finally, the third male in her life is a Templar Knight ghost who demands she help him or he will keep haunting her. Life is full for Gemma since she came home though she never expected to find three hunks demanding her attention full time, being in the midst of an M15 SWAT operation, and trying to figure out whom wants to force her to leave as too many dangerous incidents seem to happen to her Ottawa looks increasingly like a safer haven for her.----------- THE GOLDEN CRUSADER is a fascinating paranormal amateur sleuth mystery starring a realistic female who is not confident or heroic yet tries her best especially when Max, Alex or the Templar King bully her to do so. Readers will like Gemma and wish the best for her as she struggles with relocation adjustment due to the incidents, the SWAT assault, the ghost, and the mortal hunks leaving her trusting no one while seeking to uncover who wants her either dead or back in Canada.----------- Harriet Klausner
