Linn B. Halton

Goodreads Author

Bristol, The United Kingdom



Member Since
February 2011


Linn B. Halton writes feelgood fiction: home is where the heart is! In 2013 she won the UK Festival of Romance: Innovation in Romantic Fiction Award. Originally from Bristol, she now lives in the Welsh Valleys with her husband and Bengal cat, Ziggy.

For Linn, life is all about family, friends and writing. She is a self-confessed hopeless romantic and an eternal optimist. When Linn is not writing, she spends time in the garden weeding, or practising Tai Chi. And she is often found with a paintbrush in her hand indulging her passion for upcycling furniture.

Linn is represented by Sara Keane from the Keane Kataria Literary Agency.

She also writes under the pen name of Lucy Coleman.

Life is crazy right now as we are all adjusting to a new normal,  so  that’s why I believe that it’s more important than ever to focus. On what?  For me it’s about throwing myself into activities that make me feel happy, that keep me productive and stop me from worrying about the things over Read More Read more of this blog post »

A truly engaging read!

Elizabeth Pennington’s story is a reminder of how hard women had to fight, on every level, for equality. There was no nurturing, for this determined and rather stubborn young woman, from her father. A feisty, intelligent and ver

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!
