Author of the Week, Linda Anne Wulf, Interview


Linda Anne Wulf

Child of an avid reader and newspaper columnist, Linda devoured mysteries and literary classics along with apples and Tootsie Roll pops. As a teen she wrote two longhand manuscripts, read and re-read by her sister and cousins and later submitted to the local landfill. Eventually, books by Charlotte and Emily Bronte, Anya Seton, and Sergeanne (Anne) Golon inspired Linda to write historical romance/suspense, and twice she's been awarded first place for historical romance in national competitions sponsored by Romance Writers of America. A landscape quilt artist as well (see lwulf shop on Etsy), Linda lives in Kentucky with her husband, son, and three indoor cats who have no clue their neighborhood is an official bird sanctuary.







Holly: Hi Linda!  Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Linda Anne Wulf: Hi Holly! Thank you so much for including me as an author of the week.

Growing up in Louisville, Kentucky, I read Nancy Drew mysteries, The Hardy Boys, inventor biographies (go figure), and my favorite, the English classics. I wrote my first two novels during high school, but only for the entertainment of myself and my sister and cousins. I didn't get serious about writing until years later when my husband bought our first computer. Being by that time a big fan of Sergeanne (Anne) Golon, Victoria Holt and Teresa Medeiros, I wanted to write historical romance. But being just as much a fan of the Bronte sisters, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Daphne du Maurier, I also wanted to write suspense. So, I write historicals containing as much suspense as romance--a wonderful mix, and so much fun to plot. I'm also an art quilter and have a shop on Etsy. That vies for my writing time, but there's no way I'm giving up art quilting--it uses a different part of my brain and gives the writing/editing parts a break. Consequently I've come to grips with being one of those authors who only turns out a book every year or so. Quality, not quantity. That's what I tell myself. <grin>

Holly: Can you tell us a little bit about your book, Heart of the Hunter?

Linda Anne Wulf: This book is a historical romance with plenty of suspense. When Fianna Morgan is burned out of her tenant home and forced into service at Dinsmore Hall, she recognizes Lord Graham's oldest son, Gareth, as the caring stranger who rescued her from a killer eight years ago in Dinsmore Wood. Yet Gareth denies ever having met Fianna. Cold and distant toward her, he still seems oddly concerned for her safety. Determined to find out why, Fianna forces him to acknowledge their past acquaintance--and consequently, as Gareth had feared, makes herself a target for the killer again.

Holly: What was the inspiration for this novel?

Linda Anne Wulf: The same thing that inspired my first novel (The Heart Denied)--a vivid dream from a bygone era. Dreaming during sleep (and probably daydreaming, too) is an effortless way to come up with a plot. Now, if I can just figure out how to do it on demand!

Holly: Where can we purchase Heart of the Hunter?

Linda Anne Wulf: It's on Kindle and in paperback at Amazon.com, and in paperback on the Barnes and Noble website. You can also find it at Alibris Books.  

Holly: Are you reading anything interesting at the moment? If so, what is it?

Linda Anne Wulf: Yes, Flight of the Raven by Stephanie S. Tolan, which is young-adult fiction, a genre I'm exploring for the first time since I was...well, a young adult. This one gets into bioterrorism, spirit totems and out-of-body travel, the latter two of which greatly interest me.

Holly: How much of you or people you know do you think make it into the characters in your novel(s)?

Linda Anne Wulf: Oh, I think a lot of me winds up in my books, in several very disparate (and sometimes desperate) characters. As for people I know...I'd better take the fifth on that one.

Holly: What is the hardest part of writing in your opinion?

Linda Anne Wulf: Keeping BIC (butt in chair). And off the internet.

Holly: If you could live in one of your books or series’ which would you choose and why?

Linda Anne Wulf: Heart of the Hunter. I reveled in the remote seclusion of Dinsmore Hall and the surrounding forest, Dinsmore Wood. Sometimes hauntingly romantic, sometimes downright creepy. Right up my alley.

Holly: What is your take on editing your work (pre-edits I suppose before it gets passed to an editor)—do you hate it? Is it a strong point for you?

Linda Anne Wulf: It's a love-hate endeavor for me, because I edit my manuscripts far too obsessively before they go to my publisher. Even then, I usually miss something.

Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Linda Anne Wulf: Yes--thank you, thank you, for taking a chance on me and my writing. You don't know how much it means to someone who always wanted to entertain but was too shy to speak in public. It's all about the entertainment--there's no other reason for me to write. Nothing thrills me more than to hear that one of my books has kept someone up at night or distracted them from something else they're doing.

Holly: Have you ever read a book that made you so mad, sad, happy, and excited and so many other emotions that even though you loved it your might not ever read it again?

Linda Anne Wulf: Not exactly...but the extraordinary fate of Celia in Anya Seton's Green Darkness did send me into a week-long depression.

Quickie Questions:

Holly: When do you prefer to read?

Linda Anne Wulf: At lunch and at bedtime.

Holly: Ebook or hardcover/paperback?

Linda Anne Wulf: Hardcover/paperback, hands down.

Holly: Favorite color?

Linda Anne Wulf: Purple

Holly: Favorite movie?

Wuthering Heights (Ralph Fiennes & Juliette Binoche version)

Holly: Cats or dogs?

Linda Anne Wulf: Cats. Coolest animals on the planet.

Holly: Swimming pool or ocean/lake?

Linda Anne Wulf: Ocean/lake.

Holly: Dark Chocolate or Milk Chocolate?

Linda Anne Wulf: Dark, particularly chocolate-covered pomegranate. Walmart hasn't figured out yet that I'm buying every bag they stock.
