Linda Rettstatt grew up in Brownsville, Pennsylvania and worked for her hometown newspaper following graduation from high school. She began her writing career reviewing community theater productions (a task no one else on the news staff wanted.)
Linda writes women's fiction and contemporary romance, and her background as a psychotherapist serves her in digging deeply into the emotional and psychological depths of her characters. She is the owner and moderator of Women Fiction Writers, an online critique group of women writers from the USA and Canada. Four of her books have finaled for EPIC eBook Awards. She currently resides in Southaven, Mississippi where she is allowed to share an apartment with her cat, Binky (as long as she continues to bring home the Fancy Feast).
