Lin Wilder is a former Hospital Director who has published 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.”
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, is available for purchase at Amazon.
The "unplanned surprise" non-fiction account of her return to faith: Finding the Narrow Path, was published in August of 2016.
Malthus Revisited: The Cup of Wrath, the fourth in the Dr. Lindsey McCall series, will be released in the fall of 2017.
Her series of medical thrillers are situated on the central coast of California with many references to the Texas Medical Center in Houston 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 northern Nevada with their two dogs.
