Michael Lindley is a #1 Amazon author for "Mystery Thriller & Romantic Suspense" with his debut novel THE EMMALEE AFFAIRS, (previously published as THE SEASONS OF THE EMMALEE). His subsequent novels follow this genre in the continuing "Troubled Waters" Suspense Thrillers series. His stories feature love and relationships challenged by the troubled waters of betrayal, tragic loss, murder and the many dark and unforeseen forces that can lie just below the surface of our fragile lives.

All of Michael's books are set in idyllic locales and often compelling historical contexts. The settings include a remote resort town in Northern Michigan in the 1940's, 50's and present-day; Atlanta and Grayton Beach Florida in the turbulent 1920's as well

I often wish there was really a time machine to take us back, but writing is the next best thing!(less)
