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.)

I was utterly charmed by Dyer's account of Emma Sheridan's wacky, wild, and emotionally moving journey of self-discovery. What a treat! Fans of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series are sure to relate to Emma's compulsion to find her very own Fraser. The ...more

Send Me a Sign by Tiffany Schmidt
"One of the things that really resonated for me about SEND ME A SIGN, was that absurd, but ever too popular notion that hiding the truth and going it alone are the right ways to navigate a life. I spent a lot of my teen years avoiding truths and re..." 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.”
