About Linda Lee Rathbun

I am a dual citizen of the United States and Australia. I recently returned to the States after many years in Australia with my husband, Steve. Steve is a photographer, and together, we have had over 200 articles published in magazines worldwide. We have also had four 4WD touring guides to Australia published by Universal Publishers.

Natural Wanders in Australia is a travel memoir based on a tour we did in 2000. For the photo album of this memoir, and for more information about my travel writing, please visit my website at www.lindaleerathbuncom-.

Tjuringa was my first suspense novel; it was born from my travels in Australia's Outback, and from my strong attraction to Australia's Aboriginal people.

When traveling, I love to find wonderful settings for my novels, such as Lamington National Park where my romance novel, Emerald Destiny is set, Lord Howe Island where Magic Surrender is set, and Melbourne where A Twist of Fate is set. Romances are fun to write since this genre is such a contrast to travel writing where so much nitty gritty information is required.

I hope my writing expresses my love of nature in general, and of Australia in particular.

Thank you.

A great story with many elements, which deserves to be read by anyone interested in Aboriginal culture. The book mentions the main difficulties caused to Aborigines by europeans since colonisation, but this history is weaved skillfully into the adventure story of the quest to recover the sacred stone, taking us across the scenic desert country, and including a romance between two of the characters.

Great novel. It was hard to put this book down. The author's insights into the culture of indigeous Australians was remarkable and her intimate knowledge of the remote corners of that vast country enabled her to provide a level of detail that really makes the reader feel they are there. I highly recommend it!
