Lynda Fitzgerald has been writing all her life. She studied creative
writing at both Georgia Perimeter College, where she was the winner
of a Creative Writing Scholarship, and at Emory University. When she
isn't writing, she can usually be found curled up with a book written by
one of her many favorite authors. "I've always been a reader. I can't
remember a time when I didn't read, and I can't imagine life without
books. Many years ago, I read “Fahrenheit 451” (Ray Bradbury) with
horror. Burn all books? Hideous thought. Life would be so much less
exciting if we couldn't count books as friends."
Lynda’s debut novel, If Truth Be Told, was released by Five Star
(Thompson-Gale) in June, 2007. Set in Melbourne Beach, Florida, If
Truth Be Told has elements of romance and suspense while it explores
the value of truth. Her second book, Of Words & Music, which is set in
Atlanta, Georgia, was released in March 2009, and her third, the first in
the Sunshine State mystery series, was released in April 2010, followed
by LIVE Ammo and LIVE in Person. Not long after, An Irreconcilable
Difference became available on Kindle. Soon to be released are LIVE
Wire and Winterkill.
Although she was born and raised in Florida, Lynda now resides in
Snellville, a suburb east of Atlanta, close to her two children and 4
grandchildren, with a passel of good-sized rescue dogs. Even though
she now lives miles from any ocean, her heart and soul remain firmly
planted at the seashore.
