Linda S. Clayton has been writing ever since she could hold a pencil. She wrote a poem for Jack and Jill, class songs, a college class play, The History of Hair – a book about her sister’s many glorious hair colors and styles, and many other mostly forgettable things.

During the thirty years she and her husband lived overseas, Linda had a successful career as a portrait painter, but she never stopped writing. She wrote a humor column for an English publication in Bonn, Germany and wrote countless attempts at novels that were shoved in the back of a drawer.

Her adventures and misadventures in foreign countries are providing a steady supply of material for her new Julia Greene Travel mysteries.

Linda loves to grow vegetables – particularly tomatoes, travel and play with her two dogs.
