INTERVIEW


Linda, welcome to the Suspense Sisters! We’re so glad you’re joining us.

First of all, tell us about your books. What kind of suspense do you write?


I write FBI thrillers, a natural choice for me since my husband made training videos for the FBI for over 27 years. FBI policies and procedures populated our dinner table discussions and many of our friends are agents. I try to portray the Bureau authentically, although I must say my characters get into a lot more trouble than most real agents! My books are straight suspense, although some have a romantic thread.

What do you do when you’re not writing? Any interesting hobbies?

I love dogs and have done obedience, rally, and conformation showing with them over the years. After thirty years of sporting dogs, I now have a Sheltie who happily lies at my feet while I write and takes me for walks on our country road.

I also love the Word; I’ve taught adult Bible studies for thirty years, I mentor a group of women, and I’m currently doing BSF (Bible Study Fellowship).

And I love going to the beach. Give me salt air, hot sand, and waves crashing on the shore and I’m happy!

What do you hope readers will take away from your books?

Life is hard, evil exists, yet God is sovereign. Knowing Him, you can find strength to get through any difficulty.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on the third, (as yet unnamed) book in the Bloody Point, Battered Justice series. The niece of an agent is seduced by an older man and soon finds herself trapped in a human trafficking scheme.

  2. Linda, Welcome to the Suspense Sisters. (Since I'm a former "honorary Suspense Mister" I don't think I should be in the drawing).

  4. I’ve heard lots about your book Sniper. I love any type of suspense. And I’m with you on the beach thing....it’s my happy place, but we live five hours away so I don’t get to go very often.
