After years of writing and editing for others, raising a family, and over twenty years of running her own businesses, Linda decided to tackle her first fiction novel entitled RAGE. After realizing it contained too many words, Linda turned the novel into a trilogy, which eventually stretched into a much longer series called THE MARCY SERIES.

When asked about inspiration, Linda has this to say: "Nobody inspired me to write, but I do remember my mother and father always saying 'anything you put your mind to you can accomplish. Don't ever let anyone tell you, you can't do something.' Having the support of my husband and children is very important. Having my youngest daughter, who is a writer and editor as well, to offer advice, has helped me st

REVIEWS

Reviews, we all need them if we want to sell something--a service or a product. People like to read reviews. It lets them know whether a product is good or bad, doesn't it? Whether a restaurant is worthy of our time and money, or if we may get decent service at a hair salon or spa, Without lots of reviews, we may not get the business we all desire, or in the case of my situation, I may not sell bo Read more of this blog post »

Outstanding continuation from The Heist. SO much fun! I couldn’t have asked for a more adventurous, exciting, comedic story. The Evanovich/Goldberg team did it again. Just like The Heist, the twists and turns are terrific. The well thought out plot l ...more

One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
“I’m telling you, it’s fucking hard to be classy,” she said.
This came out of Connie’s mouth in ONE FOR THE MONEY, but it was me talking. I remember being at a mass book signing about a hundred years ago. Sandra Brown was there, and she was the perfect beautiful, cultured Texas lady. Perfect hair, perfect makeup, perfect slim figure in a perfect Chanel suit. She smiled at every reader and said something lovely while she signed their book. I was two tables away. I was wearing Doc Martins and jeans that were too small. My red thong was sticking out of the back of my jeans, barely covering my butt crack. I was trying hard to channel Sandra Brown ...more

One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
Burg Catholicism was a convenient religion. When the mind boggled, there was always God, waiting in the wings to take the rap.
As a kid, I was one of a handful of Presbyterians of Danish descent in my town. Most of the rest of the town consisted of eastern European Catholics. So, I became a Catholic by association. I like that when things go unexplainable, God is there, ready to take the blame. It’s like he’s the ultimate parent. Happy to bear the burden of “why is this happening” and then stand by your side while you struggle through.

One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
The way I see it, living in New Jersey is a challenge, what with the toxic waste and the eighteen-wheelers and the armed schizophrenics. I mean, what’s one more lunatic shooting at you?”
The Plum series is all about attitude and point of view. The world is a crazy place and life can be ugly. It’s important to take a couple steps to the side, reevaluate, find a positive attitude and say, “meh. I got this. It could be worse.” I like to think people from Jersey have the laugh-through-life attitude in spades. Because if you can’t laugh off armed crazies and emphysema from the smog you’re going to have to move to a new state. And that means you’ll have to pump your own gas and give up soft serve frozen custard.

“Keep in mind, fellow writers, that readers opinions are subjective. Not everyone is going to love what we write. It doesn't make it bad or "wrong". It just makes it not right for everyone. Don't get too discouraged by reviews. I had someone tell me one of my scenes was a cliche. So what! I like cliches once in a while. Besides, A different person read the exact same scene at the same time, and they told me it was their favorite part. Interesting, isn't it? ”

Linda Burson Hi Nell,

Sure, I’ll download your book.

I’m in the middle of editing two of my books, so it may not be read right away. I marked it to read, however.

Nell Grey Hi Linda,
The Strictly Business Proposal

Can I recommend this book to you? It's a free download on Amazon at the moment. It's book one of an action romance series set in West Wales. I can promise you that it's a gripping read.

If you like it, I'd be grateful for a review.
Many thanks and have a great weekend,
Nell Grey.
