Welcome, Linda. How do people react when they find out you write?
Most people react with surprise, then say things like: “Do you write real books?” or “I’ve always wanted to write a book.”
What’s your favorite place you have visited?
England – I have been an Anglophile since high school, and several of my books are set in England, so it was a huge thrill to go and be where my characters have been and to see sights I had only read about.
What was the main inspiration for the new book? Had the idea been on your mind for a while or just popped into it one day?
The inspiration for Under Fire came during a brainstorming assignment for a writing class coupled with an incident that occurred in a nearby town.

Please tell us a little about your novel, Under Fire.
Under Fire is set in 1942 and tells the story of Ruth Brown whose missing sister Jane is declared dead. Convinced her sister is still alive, Ruth follows clues from their small New Hampshire town to war-torn London trying to find her and uncovers activities of smugglers, resistance fighters, and the IRA – all of whom may want her dead.
