Why I Chose Mystery over Romance”
Lynda Rees, Award-Winning Author
A diverse background, travel to exotic locations, and curiosity about how history effects today’s world fuel Lynda’s writing. Born in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky, the coal miner’s daughter is part-Cherokee Indian and grew up in Northern Kentucky while Newport prospered as a mecca for gambling, and sin. She resides on a horse farm in north/central Kentucky with her husband and a host of wacky critters. Published in historical romance, romantic mystery, children’s middle-grade mystery, children’s picture books, self-help, advertising copy and freelance, Lynda is an active member of several professional writing organizations.
My award-winning debut historical romance, Gold Lust Conspiracy is about a young woman’s struggle to survive and thrive in rugged frontier Alaska, when men ruled the world.
The Bloodline Series of romantic suspense stories about strong women facing disaster and adversity in a small Kentucky horse country town. Book 1 of the series, Parsley, Sage, Rose, Mary & Wine, is another award-winner. There are now ten books in this series. I’ve published several stand-alone mysteries, a contemporary romance, two middle-grade children’s books, Freckle Face & Blondie and The Thinking Tree, and a child’s picture book, NO FEAR, as well as a series of non-fiction books.

It’s worth the time to listen to the whole thing, especially when she gets to the Q&A. Her perspective n editing is the best I’ve heard, and I’ve taken a lot of editing classes.
