More About the Author

I write because people heal. And those are the people who fascinate me.

They heal from pinpricks and catastrophes. They heal seamlessly or with scars, hidden or visible. They heal in as many ways as there are things to heal from, then multiplied by the number of individuals there are in this world.

As a journalist, I witnessed moments of "injury" and frequently found myself asking "How does someone get past that?" - whether "that" was pinprick or catastrophe. That question is also at the heart of my stories. What my characters are healing from frequently falls into the realm of wounds most of us carry. That makes the healing no less fascinating and no less admirable than if a character has troubles few of us will ever encounter. (I am piling on with one character right now, and it's starting to make me feel a little guilty.)

I find people often heal from doses of humor, honesty, and being pushed into situations they've been trying to avoid. Since few people will push themselves into situations they've been avoiding (wg), the characters need friends, family, and community willing to push. So my stories have a lot of those elements.
That's why I'm most pleased that my readers say my books blend "laughter and tears" with characters who "live and breathe." I don't have the most focused writing career - contemporary romance, mystery, women's fiction, historical romance, nonfiction - but those elements unite my 30+ titles.

Some say my stories have happy endings. I like to think of each story as being the process of the main characters getting themselves to a point where they can have a happy beginning. Because they've done a lot of healing.

If you enjoy stories about characters learning, growing, and healing, with some humor, sometimes some mystery, and frequently romance, I hope you'll try my books.

I was a little wary about buying the book, I don't generally but much mystery/suspense. However, when I realized the book was by Patricia McLinn (I have really enjoyed her books in the past), I decided to give it a chance. I really enjoyed it. I read it in one sitting. I hadn't planned it that way, but just couldn't stop once I was in the middle. The characters really made me care about them. I can hardly wait for the next one in the series.

This is better-quality than many small-town mysteries. A deputy who vanishes in his pickup truck amid Wyoming mountains and a TV reporter who used to be an investigative journalist are at the core of the tale. Deputy Foster Redus, who had a way with the ladies but didn't respect them, was last seen after Thanksgiving but is still missing when Elizabeth Danniher arrives at Sherman's small TV station in April. Elizabeth had been working in NY but has been demoted since her divorce until she sorts out her life. Then a determined young girl asks her for help, despite the fact that the help she gives is officially limited to consumer affairs.

Tamanda Burrell thinks her father is unfairly blamed for the deputy's disappearance - he has lost business and friends, and will lose joint custody of Tamanda if his ex-wife has her way. Redus had been seeing Tamanda's mother, giving Burrell motive. Only a brusque investigation was carried out by the sheriff and Elizabeth has to wonder why the local law enforcement wasn't more interested in finding one of their own. Aided by Mike, a younger reporter who wants mentoring, she hones her rusty investigative skills and interviews everyone in town. Mike's aunt who works in the sheriff's office is a source of unofficial gossip and Deputy Alvarez is also helpful, but the more influential citizens generally stymie the reporters. The women Redus had been with somehow each believe he was coming back for them, though resentful of his other conquests. Then Redus's truck and body are found pushed off a mountain road, and matters take a more sinister turn.

The setting is excellently described, from the struggle to make ranches pay to the mineral resources, the artery-clogging food and long empty sweeping vistas.

Patricia McLinn in her newest series: Caught Dead in Wyoming has captured the essence of a rural town in the boondocks of that state. The plot is interestingly different, the characters have a 'real' feel to them. I like everything about this book. The fast pace, the 'no holds barred' conversations, the up-front revelations of what is happening. There are many stories out there, but the

trick is in the telling...the expertise of the teller...the inherent pulse beat of a truly professional writer and that is what we have here.

The unwinding (tick-tock) of the plot is done in such a way as to make the reader feel as though they themselves are right there and McLinn serves us well in that it is not a rushed conclusion; all our questions are answered and the case is wrapped up with style and acuity.

What we have here is a clear case of writing brilliance and as Book 1 in this new series, I predict a home run for P. A. McLinn and I will follow the game every step of the way.

Elizabeth Daniher was a popular hard news reporter until a bitter divorce from her TV producer husband landed her in small town Wyoming. Worse, she is no longer to report the news but to do a 'helping out' section where her most hard-hitting story concerns a defective toaster. When she is approached by a little girl who want her to 'help out' by proving her father innocent of murder, she is, at first, reluctant. If she can manage to remain below the radar until the end of her contract, she may be able to save some remnant of her career. However, with pressure from the little girl and a rather good-looking co-worker, she relents and soon she finds herself back in the saddle again, so to speak, pursuing the story of her career; that is, if she isn't killed before the cameras even start rolling.

Sign Off is the first in a new series by author PA McLinn. Originally a reporter herself, she has created a fine cast of characters while doing a great job portraying the hunt for the Story. If you enjoy a good mystery with some very credible characters, a behind-the-scenes peek at TV news broadcasting, just a hint of romance, and a plot that will keep you guessing right until the end, this might just be the perfect book for you.

This is one of those books that you want to stop everything to read while hoping it never ends. E.M. Danniher makes a compelling protagonist who is easy to root for and even easier to believe in. But it's the secondary characters that make the story larger than life. Mike Paycik as a side kick who has his own reasons for digging deeper into a deputy's disappearance; Tamantha Burrell, a little girl who won't give up and her daddy, Thomas David Burrell, a good man trying to do the right thing and getting sucked deeper and deeper into being set up for murder. The mystery is complex enough to keep you guessing till the end but it's the world of the story that keeps you reading - loved Penny, the checkout clerk who knows everyone's business and then some; Aunt Gee who isn't afraid of calling foul on her boss, the County's sheriff and even Mrs Parens, the retired school teacher who cares deeply about her students and her community years after she has stopped teaching. An A+ read! Very excited to start reading the next in the series and to hoping this series lasts forever!
