Growing up in White Deer, Texas a small town that boasts one blinking light, Linda Baten Johnson won blue ribbons for storytelling, and the dream of making up tales to entertain was born. As an adult, Linda spent many hours packing and unpacking as she and her husband George have lived in 15 different places in the United States and enjoyed a three-year assignment in England. In between moves, Linda earned her Master of Arts degree in English and history, worked as a Realtor, a teacher, and logged many volunteer hours.
One volunteer assignments was a National Park lighthouse in Michigan where she and her husband lived in the assistant keeper’s cottage. That posting inspired Mystery of Desolation Point, and she used historical records as the basis for the middle grade novel. Linda loves research and all books include an historical element.
She currently writes squeaky-clean romance novellas, eleven and counting, and collaborates with other authors in putting them in boxed sets.
Linda quickly learned the benefit of good critique partners and organizations such as Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and American Christian Fiction Writers.
