What’s New

Just Released: Cold Open

August 23 is the official book birthday for COLD OPEN, the latest Caught Dead in Wyoming mystery with humor and a hint of romance.  Since last June, a series of murders have tested Elizabeth Danniher and her KWMT-TV colleagues’ reporting — and amateur sleuth — skills. Now winter has turned into “spring” and Elizabeth is settling down in Cottonwood County — until she finds a dead body in a house for sale. Diana, Mike, Tom and Jennifer swing into action to help sort out whodunit.

Listen to the Authors You Love to Read

This year, I’ve introduced something new for my book-loving fans. The podcast Authors Love Readers is a weekly conversation between authors about how and why they create stories. Every Wednesday, I interview a fellow writer about books and life and quirky, fun things. I’ve gathered questions from readers, but I’d love to have more interview ideas, so if you have some to contribute, just send them here.

All-New Book, Series

She’s a prosecutor chasing demons. He’s wrestling them. Will they find proof of innocence? Or will the demons win?

A brand-new romantic mystery/ romantic suspense, PROOF OF INNOCENCE, has just released. It’s not like any of my other books. Set in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, Proof of Innocence is a fusion of murder mystery, romance and suspense. It’s also the first of at least two books. A sequel, Price of Innocence, will be out in 2019. You can order it now exclusively at iBooks!

Meet Patricia

Patricia McLinn is the USA Today bestselling author of mystery, romance, women’s fiction known for strong characters, touches of humor, connected stories, and settings that make you want to move in. She had 27 books in 25 years in traditional publishing. Having secured the rights back to a number of her earlier books, she began indie publishing in early 2010. That made her officially a hybrid author, since she also still had books under traditional contracts. In mid-2015 she left the final traditional publisher and has been happily 100% independent since.

Patricia is also the host of Authors Love Readers, a weekly conversation between authors about how and why they create stories. The podcast covers lots of genres and all kinds of books, so if you love reading, visit every Wednesday for a new episode.
