Linda Carroll-Bradd

As a child, Linda was often found lying on her bed reading about characters having exciting adventures in places far away. Upon reaching a landmark birthday, she decided to write one of those romances she loved so much. Easier said than done. Perseverance paid out and twelve years later, she received her first call from a publisher and a confession story was published. Now Linda writes heartwarming contemporary and historical stories with a touch of humor, and many have a tie to her previous home of Texas.

Linda currently lives in the southern California mountains with her husband of 34 years and their two spoiled dogs, Shiba Inu Keiko and terrier mix Phoenix.

A Note From Linda Carroll-Bradd

If you like your sweet to sensual stories with a bit of humor, then check out my titles. Most of my stories are set in places where I've lived--Califronia, Oregon and Texas--and I love pitting a feisty heroine with a hero willing to stand up to her challenge.
