Podcast-ing About

I recently joined Jami Albright and Sara Rosett on their Wish I’d Known Then . . .For Writers podcast to discuss the pros and cons of traditional and indie publishing, how I write my books without outlining, and my tips for BookBub ads.

Podcast Goes Hollywood

Have you listened to my new Caught Dead in Wyoming narrator, actress and voiceover artist Betsy Moore? She’s a recent guest on my Authors Love Readers podcast and we chatted about her theater work and book narration.

Meet Patricia McLinn


Wondering what unites 50-plus books of mystery, romance, women’s fiction? My readers–Patricia’s ReadHeads–say it’s strong characters you’d like to know, touches of dry humor, smart plots, connected stories, and settings that make you want to move in. 

Explore the site to find excerpts, reviews, covers for my books – I hope something suits you. Check out Extras for Readers and Extras for Writers, along with a News section (former journalist here) and my Blog.

Give my Authors Love Readers podcast a try. It’s conversations between authors about how and why we create our stories, asking questions readers want to know. Fascinating for readers, a goldmine for aspiring authors.

Happy reading and listening! And feel free to read more about me here.
