Linda Watkins

Born on the east coast, Linda Watkins grew up in a suburb of Detroit. After college (Carnegie Mellon, '70), she moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where she lived and worked most of her adult life. In 2006, she packed her belongings and, with her four rescue dogs, took the plunge and moved to a remote island off the coast of Maine. It was there that she wrote her award-winning debut novel, "Mateguas Island."

Her success continued with the next two novels in the series, "Return to Mateguas Island" and "Ghosts of Mateguas," both award-winners.

Linda currently resides in Sedona, AZ and has recently completed a work of literary fiction, "Summer Girl, A Novel" as well as a novella, "Sarah and Zoey."She is currently at work on the fourth novel in the Mateguas Series, "Dreams of Mateguas."
