Why Linda Joffe Hull’s father thought it made sense to read Kafka in general, and THE METAMORPHOSIS in particular, to his eight-year-old daughter is a question best left for the therapist’s couch. However, as a result, Linda was bitten by the literary bug.
Always an avid reader, she ignored the corresponding compulsion to write, receiving a B.A. in Economics from UCLA, embarking on a career in sales, and raising three children. At some point along the way, she finally gave in to the unavoidable urge and sat down in front of the computer.
Linda writes contemporary and crime fiction under her own name, and since 2016 with author Keir Graff as part of the writing team known as Linda Keir. She also ghostwrites nonfiction and has penned over a dozen memoirs, self-help, and business books. She is a former president, conference chair, and treasurer of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and a national board member of Mystery Writers of America. She is honored to have been named the 2013 Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Writer of the Year.
Born and raised in St. Louis, Linda lived in Los Angeles for twelve years, but is a longtime resident of Denver.
