Linda Berry is a professed bibliophile. Her life-long love of reading and writing culminated in a twenty-five year career as an award-winning copywriter and art director. Mystery, murder, suspense, and romance are the themes of Linda’s novels. Her stories are populated with complex characters facing extraordinary challenges, almost certainly life-threatening.

Linda was the middle of five children raised in a military family. She lived an adventurous childhood in various parts of the US and Europe, exploring the mysteries of life and the astonishing worlds that exist between the covers of books.

Linda lives in a beautiful resort town in Central Oregon with her husband and toy poodle, surrounded by a motley crew of relatives who continue to propagate, and “will eventually take over the world.” Though writing is her passion, she also loves reading, art, gardening, travel, movies, and the great outdoors.


Linda majored in art and worked as a creative director and copywriter for thirty years, with clients ranging from movie studios to corporations such as Hewlett-Packard.

To this day, she loves to escape into the pages of a good book (of every genre), and reads two to three a week. As an author, she cannot conceive of writing a story that doesn’t revolve around at least one good murder, with a plot that is a labyrinth of mystery and surprise.
