Linda George is the author of five published novels and, with her husband and co-author, 68 published nonfiction books for children and teens. She became a professional freelance writer after taking the basic course from the Institute of Children’s Literature. Her first three sales were made while taking that course. Writing novels was a logical next step.
In 1990, her picture book, The Hallelujah Corncobs, was published, followed by her first novel in 1998, Gabriel’s Heart, under the pseudonym Madeline George, for Harlequin Historicals.
In 1996, Capstone Press had assigned her 12 books on snakes, a book about koalas, 4 books on working dogs, and 4 books on extreme sports, while Children’s Press had requested a book about the history of Alcatraz. Next came books on Mississippi, Montana, and Idaho for the America the Beautiful series. Nonfiction assignments poured in to the point that her husband, Charles, joined her in 1997 to be able to meet the demand.
68 nonfiction books later, they decided to retire from writing the labor-intensive books, leaving Linda free to return to her first love of writing—romance novels—in 2013.
Having dealt with numerous publishers and editors, Linda decided she wanted more control over her novels. The explosion of books being published for Kindle led her to choose Kindle Direct Publishing instead of having to wait years to have a book slotted with a traditional publisher. At last, her lifelong dream of writing one book after another and seeing them published in a timely manner was possible.
Kiss Me, Chloe is the first novel in the Kiss Me Series, which already has half a dozen books planned. And Linda has another series planned, called Forget Me Not, to follow the Kiss Me Series.
