Hi! Welcome to my website!
My name is Linda Watkins and I’m a retired financial analyst turned writer and, to date, I have written 9 full-length novels (8 published and 1 to be published soon) and 4 novellas.
I published my first novel, Mateguas Island, a supernatural thriller, in April of 2014. I am thrilled to say that it won the 2014 Gold Medal in Supernatural Fiction awarded by Readers Favorite Int’l. Book Awards , a First Place Award in Contemporary Gothic Fiction from Chanticleer Int’l Book Awards (Paranormal Awards) and was named “Outstanding Novel In Horror/Suspense” in the Independent Authors Network’s 2015 Book of the Year Awards.
Mateguas Island, the first novel in a 3-book series is available in eBook, print and audio formats on Amazon.
The second novel in the Mateguas Trilogy, RETURN TO MATEGUAS ISLAND was published in December, 2014, and is now available in print, eBook and also is on #KindleUnlimited
RETURN was named as Finalist in Horror in the 2015 Readers Favorite Int’l. Book Awards.
The third full-length novel in the series, GHOSTS OF MATEGUAS, was published in March, 2016, and was the recipient of a finalist award in Thrillers by Book Excellence Awards and was a finalist in Thrillers/Suspense in the IAN Book of the Year Awards.
I am also the author of the award-winning Kate Pomeroy Gothic Mystery Series which includes four published novels and one soon-to-be published novel! All of the Kate Pomeroy books are available on Amazon and are on #KindleUnlimited.
The fourth book in the series will be published later this year and is titled, The Blood of the Viper, A Kate Pomeroy Mystery.
In addition to being a writer, I’m also a reader and publish my book reviews on this website. In addition, I am also a dog lover – I have two rescue dogs (Chelsie and Chomps). I often post stories about dogs up for adoption (I volunteer at the local Humane Society) and stories about real life dog rescues!
So, stop by often and check out the new reviews and new dog stories!
