Linda Wisdom | What Attracts Us To Romantic Suspense?
Author Guest / September 15, 2014

The best thing about reading is the variety of genres out there. There’s something for everyone. To me, that’s the fun part and my tablet and Kindle are proof that my book libraries are eclectic. But there’s always the question why we read particular genres. So what does reading romantic suspense offer a reader? It can cover more than one genre. You have the mystery, romance, some books also offer paranormal, you’ll see humor in others, but what I enjoy with romantic suspense is the intensity that is the frosting on the multi-layered cake for my reading sweet tooth. You’ll read about stalkers, serial killers, secret agents, rogue government agents, add in vampires and other supernatural creatures with urban fantasy romantic suspense. Don’t you want a book that has you eagerly turning the page to see what will happen next? Where you’re grumbling you really need to get to sleep but you have to finish the chapter but then you find you need to read the next chapter also. You’re addicted to that sense of danger that you might not have in real life but you enjoy reading about it because it’s fun to delve into a darker world where…

Linda Wisdom | What’s Hexier Than A Witch?
Uncategorized / October 2, 2009

First off, many thanks to Fresh Fiction for giving me a chance to talk about my latest book, HEX IN HIGH HEELS. If you’ve read my series you know that my witches are sexy, snarky, and have attitude plus. They can take down the bad guys without chipping a nail and the words “charge it!” are in their vocabulary. They have a metabolism we wish we all had and the way they look is cuter than drop dead gorgeous. They’re the ones you’d love to have coffee with at Starbucks, go shopping, or find a great place for lunch. In many ways they’re just like us. Well, except for the fact, …oops, click here to read the rest, you won’t be sorry! Visit to learn more about books and authors.

Linda Wisdom | Jazz Is Back and In Need of a Good Night’s Sleep
Uncategorized / October 16, 2008

I was barely halfway through writing 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover when I knew a second book had to follow and I could see her haunted by horrific nightmares, Fluff and Puff, her mischievous bunny slippers would be in big time trouble and while she and Nick are making things work between them, there were still some outside forces threatening their peace. Oh, did I mention that Irma was demanding an updated wardrobe? No? Well, that too. Just how much multi-tasking can one witch do when she’s seriously sleep deprived? But we are talking about Jazz who can eliminate a curse with a few words, work up a flick of a finger to banish a headache – even if she still can’t cure the common cold – and deal with Dweezil’s problems with a business rival without breaking a nail. It’s just too bad she can’t figure out who, or what, is causing the nightmares that plague her and Nick where he tears out her throat and since witch’s blood is deadly to a vampire, not a good option, and Nick dreaming of Jazz having the perfect soccer mom lifestyle while he hides in the shadows. Or why Fluff…

Linda Wisdom | Are you like the character you write and read?
Uncategorized / April 17, 2008

I’ve been told that Jazz, the witchy heroine in 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover and I are very much alike. So let’s look at the similarities. Jazz and I both speak our minds at times, but she can says what I’d love to say and have magic if she needs it. She’s snarky. I’m snarky. She has red hair. I have red hair. She’s tall. I’m short. She’s gorgeous. I’m short. I think many of us would say we echo at least one of our characters. I know that’s happened to me, but never more than with Jazz. She’s lived with me for quite awhile as I worked on the book and then had no choice but to work on the second book, Hex Appeal, which comes out this November. She also gives me the chance to stick bits of history in the book. After all, she and her witch friends have been around for 700 years. She’s lived history, had passionate ups and downs with Nikolai Gregorivich, a vampire enforcer from The Protectorate who’s now a private investigator. She’s dealing with a cranky ghost haunting her beloved 1956 T-Bird convertible and having to keep a tight rein on…
