About your host
Patricia McLinn is the author of about 45 novels, including her ongoing murder mystery series, Caught Dead in Wyoming and Secret Sleuth. She also writes romances – mostly contemporary, but there are a few historicals, women’s fiction and nonfiction titles. She had 27 books in 25 years in traditional publishing. Having secured the rights back to a number of her earlier books, she began indie publishing in early 2010. That made her officially a hybrid author, since she also still had books under traditional contracts. In mid-2015 she left the final traditional publisher and has been happily 100% independent since.
