Happy Monday to you all! It is a great pleasure to have the Lovely Linda O.Johnston with us today! If you love dogs this post is for you!
I'm Linda O. Johnston, and I'm delighted to be guest blogging on Shelley's Book Case!
For those of you who don't know me, I'm a bit nuts. I admit it.
Why? Well, first of all, I'm an author. I've had 37 books published so far, with more to come. I'm also a lawyer by background, although currently I'm not practicing law. That makes me a full time writer.
And that's a good thing, considering all I've got to write!
So why, besides that, am I nuts? Well, my mind keeps leaping back and forth among the genres in which I write.
I have a new release this month: LOYAL WOLF, one of my Alpha Force miniseries for Harlequin Nocturne. It's number six in the series, and its most recent predecessor, UNTAMED WOLF, was a May release. In case you're wondering, Alpha Force is a covert military unit of shapeshifters. So, yes, I write paranormal romance.
I also write romantic suspense for the Harlequin Romantic Suspense line. My most recent was COVERT ATTRACTION, a December 2013 release, and there are more to come.
Then there are my cozy mysteries. TEACUP TURBULENCE, the fifth in my Pet Rescue Mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime was a January release, and CHIHUAHUA CHAOS, available on Kindle, is a novella, my first self-published story.
And, wait for it! Upcoming, in October of this year, is LOST UNDER A LADDER, my first Superstition Mystery for Midnight Ink!
Is there any kind of theme here? Yes, mostly. My Alpha Force miniseries involves primarily shapeshifting wolves--canines. My Pet Rescue Mysteries involve--what else?--pets, again primarily canines. And in my Superstition Mysteries, my protagonist moves with her dog to the unique town of Destiny, California, to determine if superstitions could actually be real, and she winds up becoming the manager of the Lucky Dog Boutique.
So in case you haven't figured it out, I love dogs. I also love writing about them.
And, hey. I've become quite a superstition aficionado, too. How about you? Do you cross your fingers? Knock on wood? Avoid walking under ladders?
In case you're wondering, it'll be good luck to read the Superstition Mysteries!
And by the way, I'm also writing another mystery series for Midnight Ink. Watch for it...
