a Time Travel Romance

I’m Linda O. Johnston. Welcome to my website!

Mystery, paranormal romance, romantic suspense and more… I’ve a lot of interests, and the diversity spills over into my writing. So does my obsession with dogs!

I’m writing three series now:

  • The Barkery & Biscuits Mysteries from Midnight Ink
  • Alpha Force paranormal romances for Harlequin Nocturne about a covert military unit of shapeshifters… although Nocturnes will be ending soon.
  • K-9 Ranch Rescue romantic suspense novels for Harlequin Romantic Suspense. The first, Second Chance Soldier, will be published in March 2018.

I’ve written other mysteries with dogs in them for Berkley Prime Crime: the Kendra Ballantyne, Pet-Sitter Mysteries and the spinoff Pet Rescue Mysteries. Plus, I have written The Superstition Mysteries for Midnight Ink.

Plus, I’m having some of my older romances republished in e-format. The latest is ONCE A CAVALIER, a time travel romance that features my favorites: Cavalier King Charles Spaniels!

So what’s your reading pleasure? A good story with a satisfying ending? Mine, too—and that’s what I like to write, no matter what the genre or subgenre.

BITE THE BISCUIT, my first Barkery & Biscuits Mystery, was a finalist in the fiction category for the 2016 Dog Writers Association of America’s annual Maxwell Awards!

Come visit me at the Killer Hobbies blog. I blog there every Wednesday, often about pets although they’re family, not hobbies. I, or at least my characters, also blog on the 18th of every month at Killer Characters, where our characters do the talking. And I blog on the first Monday of the month at Inkspot, the Midnight Ink authors blog. I additionally blog and chat at Writerspace.

I'm also active on Facebook. Please come friend me there!

Happy reading,

Linda O! Johnston
