Linny has taken on a life of her own and it's gotten easier to write about her. She's apparently taken an online assertiveness training course, too, because she's gotten more feisty and direct with every book.

To create a believable character, writers are supposed to decide up front on a character's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. I was never that methodical, but the more I wrote about Linny, the more all of those elements became clear to me.

Thanks for writing!(less)

Linny is a smart and kind thirty-eight-year-old woman who grew up in the South and believes good manners and hard work will always pay off.

Thanks to her charming, cheating husband, she's spooky about falling in love again. Linny longs for the security of a white picket fence life, but she loves her work, too.

When she runs into big trouble, Linny digs deep and with strength and grace, creates a lovely, rich new life for herself. Linny might even let herself fall in love again...
