About the Author

Linda S. Prather is the NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author of 8 novels including two legal thrillers, a paranormal FBI series, one romance, and her current series involving Loki Redmond, a Choctaw private investigator and Jake Savior, a former police officer. Linda lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband and grandchild, along with the “king” of the house, a Shitzu name Popcorn. Her latest release, Innocent Blood is her second in the Loki Redmond/Jake Savior series. In Linda’s own words: “This book is my favorite so far. My grandfather was a full-blooded Native American, and my mother half Native American. Prior to my marriage and children I studied Shamanism and developed a true love for nature. Studying the Choctaw history, customs, myths and religions was fascinating. Taking the facts I learned and weaving them into Loki’s story and her investigation into the disappearance of two hunters on the reservation was an emotional roller coaster for me. I found myself crying quite often.”

MY WRITING PROCESS

1) What am I working on?
I’m currently working on a novella in the Catherine Mans Psychic Suspense series.

2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I think you could take a thousand authors and give them the same story to write and each would be unique. My writing is interspersed with my own style, words and emotions. Although mysteries and thrillers have the same general themes of good guys/bad guys, my good guys and bad guys will be different than anyone else’s. My years with the judicial system and working with law enforcement allow me an insight into both areas that carries over into my work. I love character driven fiction and truthfully once the characters are developed they tell the stories.

3. Why do I write what I do?
A question I’ve been asked before and it’s one that’s sometimes difficult to answer. I love all things mysterious and things that make me think outside the norm. I’ve always loved puzzles and cryptograms. I love analyzing dreams. My metaphysical studies into psychics, hypnosis, dream analysis, touch healing and natural herbal remedies added a new element to my love of mysteries. By combining the two, mystery and metaphysical, I felt I could write a more entertaining story as well as offer some research and facts into the metaphysical areas that I’ve found beneficial.
 

4. How does my writing process work?
With a lot of blank pages staring at me. Just kidding. With me every book is different. Sometimes I have nothing more than a title that begs to tell a story. Sometimes it’s a character who wants their story told. I’ve often wished I could sit down and do an outline and follow it, but that never works for me. My first draft is usually my outline. It tells the story from A to Z. From there I go back and read and rewrite putting in the facts, geography, fluff as we sometimes call it,until the story is complete. I can spend hours upon hours of computer research for a simple paragraph in order to make sure the facts are correct. I love writing early in the morning and late at night. In the mornings my mind is fresh and perhaps I’ve dreamed a scene I really want to get down on paper. In the evenings my mind is filled with real life emotions, feelings, problems and accomplishments which I can relate to the different characters.
