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. She is a longtime member and former president of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and a past board member of Mystery Writers of America. She was also honored to be named the 2013 Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Writer of the Year.
Linda writes in different genres with a focus on the hidden dangers of suburban life. Her debut novel, The Big Bang, was published by Tyrus Books in 2013. She is also the author of romantic comedies Frog Kisses and Over the Moon and the Mrs. Frugalicious Mystery Series, which includes Eternally 21, Black Thursday, and Sweetheart Deal. Linda’s novels as part of the writing team Linda Keir are The Swing of Things and Drowning with Others, which will release on October 1, 2019.
