Worse yet, another friend, romance writer Zelma Duke, becomes the police’s prime suspect. Nina knows Wildeen had something on Zelma. Was it enough to warrant murder?

A Visit with Linda
How did you come with an idea for your book?
Good question, considering that most of the time I don’t know where the ideas come from! But I’ll do my best here. Murder Between the Pages is the first book in my new cozy mystery series. I have published 26 books in other subgenres: contemporary, mystery, and romantic suspense. The heroines of those stories have various occupations: interior designer, museum curator, art gallery owner, actress, singer. I’ve never been any of these in real life. In real life, I was a librarian. So, with the cozy, I thought, why not write about a librarian and really put yourself into the role? And, it’s been fun. Nina and I are different in one respect, though: I was a school librarian and she is a public library librarian.
What scene do you hope your readers enjoy the most?
Another tough question. For the mystery plot, the scene would be the one in which Nina finally puts all the clues together and figures out whodunit. For the romantic subplot, the scene would be where she and Stephen first realize they care for each other.
What other things have you written or what projects might we see in the future?
See question 1 for other books written. Future projects include more in the Nina Foster Mystery Series.
