It’s the fourth book in my Barkery & Biscuits mystery series for Midnight Ink. I just attended Malice Domestic, a wonderful conference for writers and readers of traditional mysteries, held each year… Read More

by Linda O. Johnston I’ve been talking a lot lately about writing in multiple genres and thought I’d do so here, too. I had a blog posted about it at another site, plus I talked about it at the Santa Clarita Romance Authors meeting last weekend. Why talk about it? Because I do it! I’ve… Read More
by Linda O. Johnston The dog days of summer are here, which makes me very happy. Oh, not the heat associated with those dog days, but just the fact they are called dog days. For anyone who doesn’t know it–or if you didn’t read my post last month about letting me bark to you about… Read More
by Linda O. Johnston This month is fairly unusual for me. I’m fortunate enough to have had quite a few books traditionally published, with more coming up in the future. But it’s rare that they’re published back-to-back, one each in two adjoining months. Like now. As I’ve mentioned here before, BAD TO THE BONE, my… Read More

As I’d mentioned in earlier blogs, I’ve been doing all kinds of things to let people know about it, including participating on a panel at Malice Domestic… Read More

The second month of this year is going fast and well for me, and I hope it is for you, too. Earlier this week I chatted on Writerspace, featuring my latest release–well, re-release–the e-version of THE BALLAD OF JACK O’DAIR. It was available for pre-order for a while, but now it is actually available, on… Read More
Hi, everyone. Welcome to my first Writerspace blog of 2016. This happens to be a very busy month for me. Rather than at the usual holiday season, I just had family visiting me, including my two young grandsons. They were around for two wonderful weeks in which I got little done but it was worth… Read More
by Linda O. Johnston Can you believe how fast this year has gone? One more month and it will be 2016. This year has been a busy one for me. I had three books published–or four, depending on how you look at it. The first Barkery & Biscuits Mystery, BITE THE BISCUIT, came out in… Read More

Rise of the Firestarter: What Makes a Hero?
