Linda Townsdin writes the Spirit Lake Mystery series inspired by her childhood in northern Minnesota. Focused on Murder (2014), Close Up on Murder (2015), Blow Up on Murder (2017), and Longshot on Murder (2019) have been called “complex murder mysteries with bone-chilling thrills and a little bit of romance.” Townsdin’s background as writer/editor for a national criminal justice consortium has been helpful in plotting her series, and her short fiction is published in several anthologies. She lives in California.
