About the Author
In her writing, Linda draws from her vast and varied experience with people facing domestic violence, hunger, homelessness, mental illness and suicide. Her nonfiction is full of practical strategies and her fictional characters leap off the page with all the nuances, strengths and frailties that draw readers to her work.
She recently completed the fourth Jake and Emma Mystery, "Death Changes Everything" with a November 1, 2015 release date and she is hard at work on book five. Linda is also toying with a new series called "It's a Gift" about a Texas Teen who discovers she is heir to a fortune - if she can stay alive until her 30th birthday, something four generations of women before her have failed to do.
Linda's short story, "Ringo the Ghost Cat" took first place in the Wyoming Writers, Inc. writing contest in the Children's / Juvenile / Young Adult category. She wrote the story for her great-niece, who asked her to write a story from the point of view of one of the author's many barn cats. "Boots" is the next story in Ringo's journey from Cool Cat to Guardian Angel. Linda is planning no further short releases until the entire adventure is complete, then she will release it as a full-length book.

Dollycas’s Thoughts I was so pleased to see this story. I enjoyed my first three visits too Casper very much. In this installment Emma and Jake find themselves assisting the police when the lead detective is sidelined. He may be down but he is not out, he just needs them to do the legwork. Then they meet and collectively strategize how to catch the killer. This was another really fast read for me. This one is about 100 pages longer than the previous books in the series so the author was able to give many more details about the characters and setting so I found myself even more invested. The pace is fast and the writing is solid. The main plot has many moving parts and involves many people, some of the city’s leading families. That means the investigation steps on a lot of toes and can be very dangerous. The secondary plot has Jake debating whether to through his hat in the ring to run for county attorney. This would be a huge change for him, switching sides from defense to prosecution. Plus it is no secret there has been corruption in the office previously so he would have a big job on his hands. Also if he does decide to run and wins how would affect these little investigations he seems to find himself in the middle of. A very interesting dynamic coming for this series in the future. Like the previous books, friendship, a couple that is truly in love, drama, and plenty of action action fill the pages. The author continues to improve with each story and this is the best one yet! I highly recommend!
