About Linda J Pifer


Born in Ohio, I've been writing since a child, for myself, for others, for work, for play. 

I trained and worked as a nurse, did a three-year enlistment with the U.S. Navy with honorable discharge. I ran a needlecraft shop in Tampa and designed hand-painted, custom needlepoint canvas before returning to the hospital setting as a licensed healthcare risk manager.  


Always intrigued by the number of diverse paths available in life, I made choices without regret. 

My first nonfiction story,  The Cloverfinder, was written about my uncle in Ohio and, published in a national magazine, it provided me a push back to writing.

Love of family led me into genealogy research and it appears in several of my books. Discovering that I have  29%  DNA from the U.K. explains  why Scotland keeps appearing in my earlier books.  


I'm a 

go-with-what-inspires-you Writer. 

Genres include: Fiction romance; Historical romance; Cozy mystery; Christian. 

A lot of me goes into the characters along with people I've met. 

First-person and third person are favorite points-of-view. 

You'll note that open countrysides and nature appear frequently in my stories; you just can't get the country out of this girl. 

I enjoy surprising my readers, such as keeping a character's true identity secret until discovered later  (Copper Swift -The Windows Trilogy).  

Reviewers have described my writing as gentle, having a creative, inherent closeness to reality and a knack for delightful detail.
