Linda Rettstatt was born in Brownsville, Pennsylvania and worked for her hometown newspaper following graduation from high school. She began her writing career reviewing community theater productions (a task no one else on the news staff wanted.) In 2004, she penned her first novel, And The Truth Will Set You Free (Wings ePress, 2007). The novel finaled for a 2008 EPIC e-Book Award. Three more have since finaled for EPIC eBook Awards, with her mainstream novel, Love, Sam winning the 2012 EPIC eBook Award. In 2016, Ladies in Waiting won the award for contemporary fiction.
Linda writes women's fiction and contemporary romance. Her background as a psychotherapist serves her in digging deeply into the emotional and psychological depths of her characters. She is independently published. She is also a freelance editor/copy editor/proofreader.
Linda currently resides in Mississippi where she is allowed to share an apartment with her cat, Stormy (as long as she continues to bring home the kibble).
