AUTHOR

Lin Wilder is a former Hospital Director and presently a self-employed writer who works from her home in northern Nevada. She finds peace and channels her creativity in the remote valley that offers her just the right amount of silence, stillness and solitude. She has written throughout her entire adult life but made the switch from non-fiction to fiction in 2006.

"I found, long ago, that the best way for me to understand something is to write about it.” Lin explains. Writing helps her to better comprehend even the most challenging subjects. Lin feels her line of work should be viewed like any other business, advising others, “In the beginning, expect to be in the red.” After years in the industry, she has learned the value of a good editor, finding that editing is far more than proofreading. "Writing is hard work and requires exceptionally thick skin. Once we decide to publish our work, we’re in the public domain where others can criticize, perhaps even in a hurtful way.” Wilder states.


Prior to her decision to switch to fiction, Lin Weeks Wilder had published over 40 articles and book chapters as well as a textbook. She has also written four self-help books. Lin's first novel, The Fragrance Shed by a Violet, was published in July of 2015. The second edition, The Fragrance Shed by a Violet: Murder in the Medical Center and the sequel, Do You Solemnly Swear are available to purchase on Amazon. When asked why she chose to create a second edition, Lin quotes Chesterton, "Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly" and explains that the multiple errors in the first edition begged to be fixed. The third in her series, A Price for Genius, was planned for a spring release but has been preempted by a non-fiction account of an "unplanned surprise" story of her return to faith: Finding the Narrow Road; A Love Story.

Her series of medical thrillers are situated in Houston, Texas with many references to the Texas Medical Center where Lin worked for over 23 years.


In her free time, Lin Wilder enjoys exercising, hiking, listening to beautiful music, gardening and last but certainly not least, reading. She is married to a former Marine and psychologist with 25 years of experience counseling ex- combat veterans. They reside in Nevada with their two dogs.

MY THOUGHTS:

Bad things never happen one at a time.  In Dr. Lindsey McCall's case, drugs are missing and two women kidnapped.  If that isn't bad enough, one of the women may be dead.   That's not the way to start your day.  Late one night a phone call created so many questions but no answers.  Lindsey and Rich Jansen start to investigate to try to find out who was doing these crimes.   Will this put their lives in danger?  Possibility of dying?   Can they figure out this crime?   Can they save their friends.?  What a medical mystery.  The author having expertise in the medical field has put a lot of reality into this book.   The pace is steady and flows well and before you know it you're hooked.  You want to figure out who is committing these crimes. The reader won't be able to turn the pages fast enough.   A grand stand medical thriller.   Hope there might be another book in the works. 


I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and Word Slinger Publicity and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
