About Linda Hall

Linda Hall spent the early years of her writing career as a journalist and freelance writer. She also worked in the field of adult literacy and wrote curriculum materials for adults reading at basic reading levels. In 1990 Linda decided to do something she'd always dreamed of doing, she began working on her first novel. The book she wrote, The Josiah Files was published in 1992.

Since that time she's written eighteen more mystery and suspense novels.

Most of her novels have something to do with the sea. Linda grew up in New Jersey where her love of the ocean was born. When she was a little girl Linda remembers sitting on the shore and watching the waves and contemplating what was beyond. She could do that for hours.

Linda has roots in two countries. In 1971, she married a Canadian who loves the water just as much as she does. They moved to Canada and have lived there ever since. One of the things they enjoy is sailing. In the summer they basically move aboard their 34' sailboat aptly named - Mystery.

Both Linda's husband Rik and Linda have achieved the rank of Senior Navigator, the highest rank possible in CPS. The U.S. sister organization is the U.S.P.S. Linda's Senior Navigator diploma hangs proudly on her office wall. What this all means is that she knows how to use a sextant and can 'theoretically' find her way home by looking at the stars.

Rik and Linda have two grown children and five wonderful grandchildren.

What a lovely short story! I just downloaded it and wanted to read the first paragraph, and it drew me in. I couldn't stop until I finished it. Thank you for this intimate look into the pains and joys of marriage!

Review by: Marcia Carrington on Feb. 25, 2012 :
This short story seems a little slow in the first half, but the sense of what the author wishes to expresses is successfully realized in the second half when all the pieces come together. In all, a realistic and well-done exploration of family life and marriage.

It caught my heart, and I had to smile about the confusion over Christmas Pansies. It's a sweet little story of how just about the time you think a marriage is over, something from the past knocks you on the head and makes you remember the love that was there - and was always there. I could go on about how too many people give up on marriage too quickly, maybe all they need are - Christmas Pansies.

The other reviews are right - this is a stay-in-your-heart story..and a hanky or two. It's taut, beautifully written and left me wanting to know...what happens next to this couple.

It also serves as a reminder that sometimes, after many years of togetherness, 'the real thing' needs to be nurtured!

Review by: Mary Ann Peden-Coviello on Dec. 04, 2011 :
This is a tender, well-written love story. It doesn't start out as much of a love story as the narrator's opening line is along the lines of "After Christmas, I'm going to leave my husband." There is a lot of heart, a lot of insight into human nature and husband and wife dynamics.

It's a short story, quick to read. It's apt to linger in your heart long after you finish it.

I enjoyed it very much indeed.
