Linda Jones – Independent author & publisher

Once upon a time – when the world was very different, I was a Psychiatric nurse. Weird how things move on… Now I’m an Independent author and publisher, with six children’s books published, as well as two of the Oozing Magic series on Audible.

In 2022 I embarked on another adventure – Adult literature – Crime novels!

I grew up in Newport, South Wales, (UK), and happily fed on a rich diet of Welsh and Greek myths. Perhaps it’s not so surprising my stories, especially for the younger age group, are full of strange and often magical creatures.

Beautifully illustrated by David Hailwood -this is one of the first weird creatures you’ll meet… But which book is it from?

Perhaps it’s my Welsh upbringing that gives me a fascination with the dark and the perverse?  It certainly gave me an ear for the lyrical.

In the magical worlds that I write about, danger and friendship are often VERY close partners, so be prepared for some hair-raising adventures!

I’m a lover of all things fantasy.  My first love was Tolkien and Lord of the Rings. I had a brief fling with Issac Asimov and Arthur C Clarke in the late 70s. I read every single word of J K Rolling’s books out loud to my children, long before the tapes came out… Ursula LeGuin Earthsea series is wonderful… I think you get the idea? Crime fiction is my second love – British – American writers, I’m especially fond of Lee Childs J D Robb and Ann Cleeves’ earlier books, although I’ve read and enjoyed so many authors it’s impossible to choose.


I’m immersed in the bleak world of mystery and crime, where every character is an enigma waiting to be discovered – and loving every second! And I’m pleased to say, the next book in the Sarah Allerton series is well underway.

At the top of each page, you’ll find the Menu. Why not check out NORTH RUN. You can find out LOTS more about all my books and useful links to buy a copy.

Happy Reading!
