Linda Randall Wisdom is a California native living near San Diego. She is married with two dogs, four parrots, and a tortoise named Florence. Just about all of her pets have appeared in one of her books.
She’s always wanted to be a writer and thanks to the encouragement of her family and teachers in high school, she never lost that dream. It was only put to the side in college when her journalism adviser informed her that writing fiction had no future. Luckily, she was able to eventually prove that adviser wrong!
When she started reading Harlequin Romances in 1978, she felt she could write one herself. Her husband told her to go ahead and she began writing the books that would eventually be Dancer in the Shadows and Fourteen Karat Beauty.
She sold those books to Silhouette Romance on her wedding anniversary in 1979. At that time, she was an office manager for a personnel agency and her boss fired her for writing the books. She decided this was time to see if she could write, and sell, a third book and luckily, she did. And more.
She collects stuffed animals and dragons. When not writing, she’s reading and loves to catch up with her friends’ books.
