Meet Linda


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 books, orange groves and rescued dogs. She always found a shady and companionable place to read.


With a growing love for books, Linda 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

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.

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