Member Since

From interior designer to author, Linn - who also writes under the pen name of Lucy Coleman - says ‘it’s been a fantastic journey!’

Linn is the bestselling author of more than a dozen novels and is excited to be writing for both Harper Impulse (Harper Collins) and Aria Fiction (Head of Zeus); she’s represented by Sara Keane of the Keane Kataria Literary Agency.

When she’s not writing, or spending time with the family, she’s either upcycling furniture or working in the garden.

Linn won the 2013 UK Festival of Romance: Innovation in Romantic Fiction award; her novels have been short-listed in the UK's Festival of Romance and the eFestival of Words Book Awards.

Living in Coed Duon in the Welsh Valleys with her ‘rock’, Lawrence, and gorgeous Bengal

  Without a doubt the star of The French Adventure is Ziggy. Her appearance in this feel-good story of new beginnings, set in France, was a cameo role. But it was also an important part of the story because it showed how perceptive cats are when it comes to deciding who they allow to cuddle them!

The post appeared first on Feel-good fiction by Linn B. Halton & Lucy Coleman.

John Donne
“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.”
John Donne, No man is an island – A selection from the prose

William Shakespeare
“The quality of mercy is not strain'd,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath: it is twice blest;
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes:
'Tis mightiest in the mightiest: it becomes
The throned monarch better than his crown;
His sceptre shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty,
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings;
But mercy is above this sceptred sway;
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings,
It is an attribute to God himself;
And earthly power doth then show likest God's
When mercy seasons justice.”
William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Allen Saunders
“Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.”
Allen Saunders

Robert  Brent
“Family is the most important possession you can ever have, and don’t be mistaken as to what family actually is. Family are those who share the same bloodline, but more importantly, family are people who you care about and call you friend!”
Robert Brent

Linn Halton Just to say a quick 'Hi' to everyone who has friended me on Goodreads now that I've found the 'comments' feature. It's a wonderful site and I'm gradually navigating my way around, adding information as I go!

Maggie Bishop Linn, Welcome to Goodreads and thank you for your interview on the Dames of Dialogue blog. This is a great place to meet reader and writer friends. Hope people become interested in your book.
