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 for Treasure Island or a wardrobe with a way to explore the land of Narnia.

Linda grew up in California surrounded by orange groves and rescued dogs. She always found a shady and companionable place to read. With a growing love for books, she later discovered Mark Twain, L.M. Montgomery, Henry Beston, Mary Stewart, E. Nesbit and James Herriot, just a few of her favorite authors.

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 university library. She earned the Distinguished Service Award for creativity and innovation while working at the University of California, Berkeley.


Linda has now written a novel of secrets hidden in history.  On an island along the Pacific Northwest coast, Christie Edwards must solve a mystery to save her friend...and herself. Linda's book, Mystery Shores, is available to read now at

Linda explores books, history and some of the things she's learned about writing in her Creative Life Blogs. Find her blogs here.

Linda lives with her husband, Peter, near the San Juan Islands now. She enjoys hiking, exploring lighthouses, reading, bird-watching and singing along (a little off-key) with classic musical films.
