Q. Before you started writing mysteries, what did you do?
A. Well, you could say I'm a half Park Ranger. I love the outdoors and took classes, such as Forestry 101, with the idea of a career in the National Park Service. However, I went on to work and volunteer in libraries instead (I'm also a big fan of books!).
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 showing the way to 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 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 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 off the Washington coast, Christie Edwards must solve a mystery to save her friend...and herself. Linda's book, Mystery Shores, is available to read now at Amazon.com.
Exploring books, lighthouses and an amazing Fair are all featured in Linda's blogs. Find her blogs here.
Linda lives with her husband, Peter, near the San Juan Islands now. She enjoys walking, exploring lighthouses, reading and singing along with classic musical films.
