Featured Interview With Linda Heavner Gerald
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born in North Carolina and have lived in the Bahamas. I now reside with my husband in Florida. We are retired which gives us plenty of time for biking, walking the beach, and gardening. Writing is my passion. My husband loves to read so it works well for us.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I began writing three years ago. Currently, I have nine published novels. My books are a gift from God. It all began three years ago. A vision would not leave me. I found it impossible to sleep unless I concentrated on it. Finally, I prayed. Beaufort Betrayal, my first book, was born. Since that time, I write daily. That is why I feel that this is a gift from God. Never, did I dream of being a writer. Now, it is my passion.

Nicholas Sparks, Nelson DeMille, Jeffrey Archer are my favorite authors. I enjoy Mystery/Thrillers and Romantic/Suspense
