Pets, romance anPets Romance & Lots of Suspenced lots of suspense. That’s me! Or at least that’s my theme on the revamped A Slice of Orange blog.
Why? Well, first, everything I write these days includes dogs, including my paranormal romances for Harlequin Nocturne, my mysteries that I write for Midnight Ink, including my Barkery & Biscuits series, and, soon, my new K-9 Ranch miniseries for Harlequin Romantic Suspense.
Also, everything I write includes romance. As I mentioned, I write for two Harlequin series, which are, of course, romances. And all the protagonists in my mysteries have romantic interests. The mysteries don’t always have a HEABad to the Bone
(happily ever after) when it comes to the romances, but of course the mysteries get solved in each one.
And that leads me into suspense. Everything I write also includes some degree of suspense, not just my mysteries but also my romances–and I don’t just mean my Harlequin Romantic Suspense novels.

So join me here at my Slice of Orange blog on the sixth day of each month, and I’ll be sure to include something regarding one or all of those themes.
CovertAllianceCoverBy the way, I have two new novels about to be published: Bad to the Bone, the third Barkery & Biscuits Mystery in May, and Protector Wolf, the eighth Alpha Force Harlequin Nocturne in June–about a covert military unit of shapeshifters.


And even though this blog is no longer sponsored by the Orange County Chapter of Romance Writers of America, I hope to see you often at the chapter’s meetings!

  • The Year is Ending, but Publicity is On The Rise!

    It’s December. The year is coming to a close. But it appears that book promotion is ramping up even more!

    I think it is! At least, I’ve attended more in-person events recently than I had in ages, and more to come.

  • Republishing Can Be Fun

    I’ve mentioned before that I’ve had 57 books traditionally published, mostly romantic suspense and mystery.  And I’m still going!

  • The Fun of Being A Writer by Linda O. Johnston

    What’s the fun of being a writer?  Everything!
    And part of that includes the fact that writing is always there.  It becomes part of you.  At least it has with me.  Everything I do, everywhere I go, my writerness is part of it.  And yes, that’s an unusual word although when I Googled it, other people have apparently used it, too.

    That trifecta sure does cover all your work. The pets and the suspense are my favorite, but your shape-shifter hunks are mighty nice, too.

  • Thanks, GBPool! Yep, those shapeshifter guys can be pretty hot. I like the guy on the cover of PROTECTOR WOLF. But you know how I feel about pets and suspense as well as romance.

    Hey Linda, sounds like your column is going to be a lot of fun – I love the cover for Bad to the Bone 🙂
