Linda Rettstatt


Linda Rettstatt discovered her passion for writing after years of working in the human services field. When she’s not writing, Kate loves travel and nature, figuring out what makes people tick, and pizza ‘n’ beer. Well, a little chocolate to top that off is always a nice touch. Growing up in the Northeast, she’s endured her share of winters and readily admits that spring and fall are her favorite seasons. If she were to live anywhere else, it would be along the eastern shore. She writes women’s fiction and says that, though Kris Radish, Elizabeth Berg and Elin Hilderbrand are among her favorite authors, her stories are largely inspired by the women she has met on her own journey through life.
