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.)

Like IN A FIX's globetrotting main character, aura adaptor Ciel Halligan, Linda has spent her fair share of time overseas, though fortunately under less stressful circumstances. Kidnapping and daring rescues are all well and good in fiction, but she

The Hang Up by Tawna Fenske

Once again, Fenske comes through with the perfect combination of heart, humor, and heat. I highly recommend hanging out for a few hours with THE HANG UP--Miriam and Jason's story is the perfect escape from real life. Enjoy!
All Fixed Up by Linda Grimes
"I've read every installment of the Ciel Halligan series and loved them all! This book doesn't disappoint and is chock full of Grimes' witty writing. The Ciel, Billy, Mark triangle continues to intrigue (though I really do like Mark better). I can'..." Read more of this review »
All Fixed Up by Linda Grimes
"(Ciel Halligan Book 4) With a bang and a giggle, Grimes continues her comic urban paranormal series. Can you imagine Ciel as an astronaut? Apparently the enemy isn't buying it. Great read."
All Fixed Up by Linda Grimes
"Linda Grimes has done it again. She's written a book that kept me turning pages and kept me smiling. Ciel Halligan is the kind of heroine who always seems to get into trouble, no matter how hard she tries not to, and I like knowing that she will g..." Read more of this review »

“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.”
