Publisher info

Linzé Brandon is the pen name of a South African project manager who taught herself to read before she went to school. This started a lifelong love affair with books.
She still loves to read - anything considered romance - but also enjoys amateur sleuth and extreme science fiction books. When she is not working or writing, she likes to do cross stitch embroidery, fly fishing, painting abstracts in mixed media, archery and watching Manchester United play. She is captain of a team of soccer enthusiasts on Superbru, and love the interplay with the guys during the season.
Her favourite time of year is NaNoWriMo, simply because she loves the challenge and the camaraderie of her fellow local and online Wrimos.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I wrote my first story, a romance between a professional nature photographer and his research assistant, in 2001. It was never published, but it still has a soft spot in my heart.
What are you working on next?
I am working on my first literary novel entitled We, the One. How the story came about is a bit fuzzy, but it was one of those stories that 'just happened'. One day I had the idea, then about month later the first draft was done. There are a few things that I still need to research (to get my facts straight) but otherwise I am basically busy with my editing. After I am satisfied that I have sorted out all the plot gaps, and inconsistencies (I am very good with these aspects of writing) then the manuscript goes to a professional editor to fix all my language and grammar boo-boos (yeah, these are not my strong points).
The cover is still a concept in my head, but as soon as the manuscript goes to the editor, I will focus my energy on getting the cover sorted out. I am fortunate that my husband is an absolute master at Photoshop, and an excellent photographer too. With his help I usually get a cover that is exactly what I envisage for a book. After he does the graphics, I add the title and my name using the fonts and styles that are in line with the rest of my brand. Since this is a standalone book, I can stretch my mind with something different than my previous books. Exciting stuff, that's for sure.

  • The Perfect Stranger on Dec. 19, 2013

    A reflection of our modern times, where people should be more aware of who they let into their lives. The story draws you in, and while you expect something to happen, the ending is still a surprise. Well done, Ms Botman.
