About this author

Linda grew up in Texas, where she rode horses, embarrassed herself onstage a lot, and taught teenagers they’d have to learn the rules of English before they could get away with breaking them for creativity’s sake. She currently resides in Virginia with her husband, whom she snagged after he saw her in a musical number at the now defunct Melodrama Theater in San Antonio. (There’s nothing like a rousing chorus of “If You Wanna Catch a Fish You Gotta Wiggle Your Bait” to hook a man for a lifetime.)

In a Fix by Linda Grimes
" It was a storyline that was new and different to me. It was also pretty darn funny. I read it and the whole time I was snickering and explaining to a friend what it said and why!! I am ready for the second book. "
In a Fix by Linda Grimes
" A different take on shifters - quite fun! I tend to avoid paranormal-romance, but needed an "L" read for a challenge, and this was instantly available at the library.

In a Fix by Linda Grimes
" I really enjoyed this novel. Ciel is an interesting lead character, and her "family" entanglements entice me to read the sequel. "
In a Fix by Linda Grimes
" I enjoyed the story and main character. The book was funny, fast-paced—it literally starts with a bang—, and creative. I also like stories with good continuity and attention to detail. In A Fix had both. I plan to read the book that follows it.

“My favorite aerobic activity is reading steamy romantic thrillers. I figure an increased heart rate is an increased heart rate. Why quibble about methodology?”
Linda Grimes, In a Fix

“Ah-ha! On the stove was a cast-iron skillet. Perfect. Precisely how hard did you have to hit someone on the head to knock him out without killing him? I wasn't sure. Guess I'd just have to bash away and hope for the best.”
