Linda Thorne was born in a podunk little town somewhere in the Deep South, but by the time she was six weeks old, she was living in Phoenix, Arizona. There, the feeling of being misplaced stayed with her. As soon as she was of age, she started moving. First, to Minnesota, which didn’t feel right, so back to her desert city. Then to the Midwest, returning to Phoenix twelve months later. Her next move took her to California, then Colorado. Her wanderlust stayed with her until she rediscovered living in the South where her debut novel is set.
Thorne’s career, like her lead character’s, is in HR management, but she began pursuing her true passion, writing, in 2005. Just Another Termination is the first in a series of mysteries that tell the story of Judy Kenagy, the first human resources manager to turn sleuth. She is currently writing the second book in her series, A Promotion to Die For. Thorne lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and two border collies.
