Linda O. Johnston's first published fiction appeared in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and won the Robert L. Fish Memorial Award for Best First Mystery Short Story of the Year. Since then, Linda has had more short stories published, plus 38 novels, including mysteries and romance. Linda's latest release is LOST UNDER A LADDER, the first Superstition Mystery from Midnight Ink. Her protagonist Rory Chasen visits the town of Destiny, California, to learn whether superstitions are real and winds up running a pet boutique there after her lucky black and white dog saves the life of the shop owner. When that shop owner is accused of murder, of course Rory has to help her again. Linda will be writing a second series for Midnight Ink, the Barkery and Biscuits Mysteries, beginning in May 2015 with BITE THE BISCUIT. Linda also wrote two mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime. Her Pet Rescue Mysteries were a spinoff from her Kendra Ballantyne, Pet-Sitter mystery series. The most recent Pet Rescue Mystery, TEACUP TURBULENCE, was published in January 2014. Protagonist Lauren Vancouver runs a no-kill pet shelter in LA’s San Fernando Valley and will do anything to save animals. In the Pet Rescue Mysteries, “no-kill” means pets, not people! Linda additionally writes paranormal romance for Harlequin Nocturne including the Alpha Force miniseries about a covert military unit of shapeshifters. So far, there have been six books in the series as well as some novellas. She also writes for Harlequin Romantic Suspense.

Linda is a former transactional lawyer who loved writing contracts as well as fiction, but her law license is officially inactive now so she can write full time. She appears often at writing conferences and libraries, where she speaks about writing romance and mystery, especially those involving dogs. Linda is a member of the Los Angeles chapters of Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime. She is also a member of Romance Writers of America, including the Los Angeles and Orange County chapters, and International Thriller Writers.
