Linda L. Crockett, is a third-generation native New Mexican, but she likes to say that some of her ancestors were standing on the North American shore when the other ancestors landed. She can trace her heritage to Comanche on one branch and all the way to Scotland at the time of the Spanish Armada on another. Being a mix of hard boiled business person and soft-fuzzy romantic, it was inevitable that she would eventually turn her hand at writing a romance. Add to the fact that as a child she read Jack London and the dictionary and viola! -- A writer is born.

Linda began her first book in March 1992 and it was sold in 1993. She devours history and loves putting in obscure little-known facts into her novels. She likes the American west but is an unabashed Anglophile. Research trips to England, Scotland and Wales are the big pay-off for the long, hard hours of writing, Linda says. That careful attention to research evidently pleases readers because many write and share their thoughts on books and characters they have grown to love. With books in over eight different languages, she has fans from all over the globe. From her first Rita Nominated, Holt medallion finalist, Fearless Hearts, her novels never disappoints. She was a double finalist in the Daphne du Maurier Excellence in Mystery contest with 2 novels. Addie and the Larid was 4th, By King's Command was 3rd. Mattie and the Blacksmith was 3rd in the Laurel awards. Linda will be serving as the President of her RWA chapter in New Mexico, Land of Enchantment Romance Authors, or LERA as well as giving a day long seminar at the Romantic Times convention in Houston, Texas in November. Along with helping aspiring authors reach publication, Linda hosts contests for her readers on her website.
