Why Linda Joffe Hull’s father thought it was well advised to read Kafka in general, and The Metamorphosis in particular, to his then eight-year-old daughter is a question better left for the therapist’s couch. As a result however, Linda was bitten by the literary bug.
Always an avid reader, she ignored the corresponding compulsion to write, receiving a B.A. in Economics from UCLA, embarking on a career in sales, and diving headlong into the all-encompassing job of motherhood.
Thanks to the encouragement of her family and the support of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, she finally gave in to the unavoidable urge and sat down in front of the computer.
Linda is a native of Saint Louis, Missouri, but currently resides in Denver, Colorado with her husband, daughter, and the various pets her sons left behind when they went off to college. (Go Hawkeye Swimming and Diving!) She is a longtime member and former president of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and is currently on the board of Mystery Writers of America. She was also honored to be named the 2013 Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Writer of the Year.
Her debut novel, The Big Bang, was published by Tyrus Books in 2013. Frog Kisses, her romantic comedy, was published by Literary Wanderlust in 2015. Linda is also the author of Eternally 21, Black Thursday, and Sweetheart Deal, the first three titles in the Mrs. Frugalicious mystery series.
