Contemporary Romance Author
Amazon Best Selling author and multiple RONE Award Finalist Linda Joyce writes contemporary romance and women’s fiction featuring assertive females and the men who can’t resist them. She lives with her very patient husband in a house in metro-Atlanta run by a fifteen-year-old canine named General Beauregard or “Beau,” who believes they are his pets. Linda’s a closet artist who paints with a brush, yet longs to finger paint…but hates getting her hands messy. She’s addicted to Cajun food and sushi. Linda will deny she only leaves the house once a week and only then to get criticism from two other authors.
More about Linda
Linda lives in Atlanta. She’s a big fan of jazz and blues, and she attributes her love of music to her southern roots, which run deep in Louisiana. Courtesy of her father’s Air Force career, she lived coast to coast in the U.S. and wrote her first manuscript when she was twelve while living in Japan, where her mother was born and raised. During recess, girls lined up on the bleachers, like birds on a wire, and took turns reading and passing pages to the next girl in line. In addition to being a book addict, Linda loves dogs. She’s a foodie—a fangirl of celebrity chefs, an RVer with a 5er, loves to hike and kayak in spring and summer, binge watch movies in the winter, and when the days cool and the leaves begin to turn in the fall, she’s all smiles over SEC football.
Linda is a member of Atlanta Writers Club, Romance Writers of America, Georgia Romance Writers, where she serves as the Hospitality Chairperson for Georgia Romance Writers. Crossing the stage during the cap and gown ceremony, Linda received a B.S. in Business from the University of Florida, and she spent her corporate career working in insurance litigation. She graduated with honors from high school, and while in high school also attended cosmetology school. She loved learning to fly a small plane, though now the most daring thing she does is zip line.
