About Linda Baten Johnson

Growing up in White Deer, Texas a small town that boasts one blinking light, Linda Baten Johnson won blue ribbons for storytelling, and the dream of making up tales to entertain was born. As an adult, Linda spent many hours packing and unpacking as she and her husband George have lived in 15 different places in the United States and enjoyed a three-year assignment in England. In between moves, Linda earned her Master of Arts degree in English and history, worked as a Realtor, a teacher, and logged many volunteer hours.

One volunteer assignments was a National Park lighthouse in Michigan where she and her husband lived in the assistant keeper’s cottage. That posting inspired Mystery of Desolation Point, and she used historical records as the basis for the middle grade novel. Linda loves research and all of her ten books include an historical element. In her Young Texans Series, she focuses on specific Texas topics such as the Galveston Hurricane, the original 300 settlers, and Juneteenth.

Linda quickly learned the benefit of good critique partners and support network organizations such as Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and American Christian Fiction Writers. In appreciation for authors and friends who helped her achieve her goals, Linda welcomes the opportunity to visit school or civic groups to discuss books or the writing process.
