Hey, y’all!

Welcome to my little book-lined corner of the Internet — come in. Have a seat. Let me grab you a glass of wine (or a cup of coffee) and let’s talk about books. I write the Agatha Award-nominated Headlines in High Heels mystery series, and I read just about everything. I love smart heroines who can take care of themselves, even when they end up in hot water.
Feel free to poke around while you’re here — browse the bookshelf, rifle through the blog archive. Check the news page for the media kit or to see what I’m working on now, and don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter and check for giveaways before you go. Thanks for stopping by!

Style Weekly on Front Page Fatality:

Walker’s years in a newsroom obviously have paid off: Her pacing is expert, her knowledge of police and court procedure evident, and her dialogue natural…Tight, fast-paced and funny, Front Page Fatality immediately draws the reader in, provides plenty of twists, and keeps its audience guessing up to the end.”

Anthony, Agatha, and Macavity award-winning author Harley Jane Kozak:

Front Page Fatality is delightful, with engaging characters, a crackling good mystery, and of course, high, high heels. LynDee Walker writes with wit and intelligence and the confidence of a newsroom insider. What fun!”

It’s Walker’s real life experience as a working journalist that makes this enjoyable mystery stand out. The details of newsroom machinations are every bit as complicated as the tangled puzzle that her sleuth must solve.”
