Linda Howard began to write at nine years old, before she knew anything about chapter breaks—she just kept writing until the story ended. For the next 20 years, she kept writing, but always for her own enjoyment until one morning when she decided to see if she was good enough to get published. She was. To date, she has graced us with a wide variety of stories, from ranchers and a mail order bride to a sexy psychic, a hired assassin, and a Knight Templar. An award-winning New York Times-bestselling author, she lives in Alabama with her husband and two golden retrievers.
