Meet Linda

Book Woman Reading Water Hat

Linda Borromeo has always been a story traveler. 


As a child, the only passport she needed came from her local library. A book could turn into a sailing ship bound tor Treasure Island or a wardrobe showing the way to Narnia.


Linda grew up in California surrounded by books, orange groves, and rescued dogs. She always found a shady and companionable place to read.

In her childhood home built in 1920, Linda remembers the bookcase designed by her grandfather. The glass doors always creaked when she opened them, and forever afterward, she associates that sound with new reading adventures.

It's no surprise Linda found her first job at her hometown public library. She went on to work as an Operations Manager for a graduate school library. She earned the Distinguished Service Award for creativity and innovation while working for the university.

Linda now writes novels of secrets hidden in history. On an island off the Washington coast in 1893, Christie and Melina must unravel puzzling and dangerous secrets. Linda's book, Mystery Shores, is available to read at

Linda lives with her husband, Peter, near the San Juan Islands. She enjoys hiking, exploring lighthouses, reading, and singing along with classic musical films.

"Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories."

J. M. Barrie
