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 mysteries and women’s fiction, and I read just about everything. I love smart heroines who can take care of themselves, even when they end up in hot water.

My new novel, SMALL TOWN SPIN, is available now from Henery Press! And while we’re talking exciting news, my debut, FRONT PAGE FATALITY, has been nominated for an Agatha Award for Best First Novel. That’s so many kinds of cool I can’t count them all. You guys are the best readers in the world! I wrote y’all a thank you note here.

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!

Maggie Barbieri on Small Town Spin:

“This Lois Lane doesn’t need Superman to save her…LynDee Walker has given us a female protagonist with guts and smarts to spare. Oh, and shoes. Great shoes.”

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!”

Laura Levine on Front Page Fatality:

Author LynDee Walker sure knows her way around a plot twist. Front Page Fatality is smart, funny, and loaded with surprises. A terrific debut mystery.”

NYT Bestselling Author Lisa Brackmann on Buried Leads:

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.”

Criminal Element.com on Buried Leads:

“This book has a great mystery, a ton of humor (I know I’ve already said that, but it was worth repeating) and really wonderful characters.”
