I live in Color Country, which is located in southern Utah among all the red mountains. I am the author of 22 books: historical romances, period romances, a romantic cozy mystery series, a mystery suspense series, a children’s book, and non-fiction. One of my books, Melinda and the Wild West, is an award-winning sweet romance for the “Reviewers Choice Award.” All my books are family friendly.
Lucy M. Montgomery, author of the Anne of Green Gables series, etc. once said, "While solitude with dreams is glorious, solitude without them has few charms." Jerome Kern wrote, "The game of just supposing is the sweetest game I know. Our dreams are more romantic than the world we see."
Perhaps the world we see is full of dirty dishes, soiled diapers, and arguing teenagers. After a big day, curl up with a book and enter the Make-Believe World of fantasy and adventure. Remember that "if the things we dream about don't happen to be so, that's just an unimportant technicality."
I enjoy writing stories that have adventure and romance with good old fashioned values. On my website at www.lindaweaverclarke.com, you may read sample chapters from my novels.
A 5-star reader review for Book #1 in the "Rebel" series states, "This book has wonderful characters and a wonderful plot. I had a hard time putting this wonderful book down. I will be reading the next book in this series."
Synopsis for The Rebels of Cordovia:
"There was a time when swashbuckling men and brave women engaged in daring and romantic adventures, those who fought with bravery and valor. In this battle for freedom, a love story begins to blossom. Daniel, a rogue and a leader of the Freemen, doesn’t realize that the sweet feminine woman he has met and is falling for happens to be the leader of Robin’s Rebels. Realizing the importance of uniting all the rebel groups, Daniel tries to recruit Robin’s Rebels but they refuse. Now he has to find a way to convince them. When he finds out the leader is actually a woman, what will his reaction be?"
Synopsis for The Highwayman of Cordovia:
The second book in the Rebel series: “With the help of a bold highwayman and a pastor’s daughter, they try to save their country from being taken over by a power-hungry leader. As they strive to stop the Kingmen and thwart their plans, Christine finds herself falling in love with Austin Knight. The only problem with their relationship is that she thinks he is her knight in shining armor instead of a highwayman. If she finds out his trade, what will her reaction be? As a pastor’s daughter, will love override her values?”

Linda's Best Advice to Writers
My advice to all writers is to make sure you do your research on the time period you’re writing about. If you’re writing about the past, don’t use modern words. Find out what kind of clothes they wore and what kind of etiquette was accepted. If electricity didn’t exist, then what did they use? When I did my research for The Rebel Series, I learned some interesting facts about lamplighters. The city is careful about who they hire because lamplighters also act as night watchmen and need to be trustworthy. I learned that the job is usually handed down from father to son and kept within the family. I love doing research.
