Linda S. Prather

Born in Kentucky in 1955 I was the youngest of six siblings.  I now live in Lexington, KY with my fiance, Coby W. Fuson.  I have two wonderful sons, Charles and Steven.  Three beautiful grandchildren, Chaz Riley Fuson, Caitlynn Mae Prather and Maya June Prather.

I always knew I wanted to write mysteries, and specifically murder mysteries. I loved reading fantasy novels, romance novels, and even certain literary works, but my imagination steered to the darker side. Even in my early attempts, I found myself in the midst of murder and mayhem. I’m sure my teachers worried about my propensity to delve into the mystical world of vampires and werewolves. I know, that’s more along the fantasy and/or horror line, but in my world the vampires and werewolves were the good guys. They only killed those who deserved to die. Or at least in my vivid imagination deserved to die. Murderers, rapists, child molesters and abusers. 

Combining my love of metaphysical studies into my love of murder mysteries put me on the path of the Jacody Ives Mysteries.
