Linda M. Orlando was born and grew up in downeast Maine. She has always loved books and began making up her own stories before she was able to write. She enjoys creating characters who bring to life the traditional Maine qualities of strength, independence and compassion. Her stories are often set on the coast of Maine, where the sparkling ocean water and the majestic Maine pine trees provide a realistic backdrop for her characters as they interact with each other.
When she is not writing, Linda enjoys long walks along the shore with her husband of seventeen years. Her hobbies are drawing, taking photographs, and listening to music. She is the mother of an autistic teenage son, and is a CPA who is employed as the finance director of a not-for profit agency that provides services to children with special needs.
Linda holds an A.S. degree in criminal justice and a Bachelor of University Studies degree from the University of Maine, as well as an MBA from City University in Bellevue, Washington, which was obtained solely through independent study.
GuestHouse is Linda's first ebook with Awe-Struck E-books. She is currently working on another romantic suspense novel, as well as a young adult novel, both of which she hopes to complete this year. Her readers may contact Linda at P.O. Box 733 Holden, ME 04429
