Linda B. Myers
I won my first creative contest in the sixth grade for my Clean Up Fix Up Paint Up Week poster. It involved monkeys washing spots off a giraffe, but I don't remember what it said. I'd like to think my words have more staying power these days.
My first book was non-fiction published decades ago by Outdoor World. From this experience, I learned how little an author can make. So I turned to marketing for many years. Eventually, I traded in snow boots for rain boots and moved from Chicago to Port Angeles, WA.
My first novel Lessons of Evil is still my scariest although A Time of Secrets gives it a run for its money. Fun House Chronicles introduces the characters that appear in my PI Bear Jacobs mystery series in which a tough and clever group of seniors takes on dark crime with a large dose of humor. My fantasy, The Slightly Altered History of Cascadia, is about the gods fixing up what they've screwed up when they created humans.
