Linda Gilman is an up and coming popular historical western romance author. She lives in Troy, Missouri with her husband, Charlie, her oldest son, Tim, and their loveable and excitable golden doodle, Dory.
Linda has a passion for the old west, specifically gold or silver mining camps that are now nothing more than ghost towns. She loves to research the history of mining camps in the states of Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, Nevada, Utah, Idaho and California. She's forever on the hunt for a unique story she can bring to life.
Always fascinated by the notion that thousands of people once dropped everything and rushed to unknown, hard to get to places to hunt for an allusive nugget of gold, Linda uses these now abandoned towns of our past as a backdrop for her unique stories filled with humor and colorful characters reminiscent of the wild gold rush eras of the Old West.
Her stories are filled with adventurous, always charming and dangerous heroes. Men pitted against heroines possessing more than a tad of spirited independence.
Linda's characters are much like the real men and women who braved the land west of the Mississippi. The folks who endured a host of unknown hardships and danger in order to fulfill their dreams of riches and a new way of life.
This author hopes her stories keep the wild spirit of those captivating times memorable for her readers.
