A self-described nerd and student of history, Linda Rae spent many years as a technical writer specializing in 3D graphics workstations, software and 3D animation (her movie credits include SHREK and SHREK 2).

A fan of action-adventure movies, she can frequently be found at the local cinema. Although she no longer has any fish, she follows the San Jose Sharks. She is a member of Novelists, Inc. (NINC) and makes her home in Cody, Wyoming. See her upcoming books on her website:

Share My Profile On...


1. Tell us a little bit about yourself, your hobbies and interests.

Researching history has become one of my favorite pastimes, but going to the movies is still my weekly favorite. I also enjoy painting with watercolors and watching hockey.

2. When and why did you start writing books?

I've been writing books for decades—I was a technical writer for almost twenty years before I returned to writing fiction. My historical romances have been published for nearly ten years.

3. What made you decide to tackle writing as a career?

Doing what you enjoy is the best job, and writing is that for me.

4. Which one of your books or characters is your favourite?

A beta hero, George Bennett-Jones, Viscount Bostwick, featured in one of my first books and still makes appearances in newer books. He's a good friend, an excellent husband and father, and an all-around good guy.

5. Which one of your books was the hardest to write and stretched you the most as a writer?

The Promise of a Gentleman is 740 pages in print and took me longer to write than any other due to the amount of research required and the number of characters that had to be developed. This book sets the stage for all the other books in my various Aristocracy series of books.

6. Who is your favourite author and book?

Isaac Asimov and Foundation

7. What book are you reading right now?


8. Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

Usually from historical tidbits I find while doing research. It might be an odd object, a country house, an historical figure, or an event that sparks the imagination.

9. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I enjoy television, especially historical shows (usually set or produced in other countries), reading, having lunch with friends, and going to the movies.

10. Do you have any new books in the works?

I am currently working on the series The Grand Tours of the Aristocracy.
