Welcome, Linda, and congratulations on your latest historical romance, The Fox of Cordovia. Tell us a little about this story.

In this swashbuckling romance, a sinister plot has just been uncovered and its up to a former patriot and a young nurse to discover who is behind it. Caroline is engaged to the future mayor of Laketown, a man of influence and greatly respected. But all that changes when she overhears a conspiracy behind closed doors. After being discovered, she runs for her life. Caroline needs to report her findings, but whom can she trust? When she asks Jesse Conover for help, the adventure begins.

This is part of “The Rebel” series. Did you start out with multiple books in mind or did additional books follow the first?

I started out with The Rebels of Cordovia, but then received comments from readers how much they enjoyed this story and asked if I was going to have a sequel. At the time, I was busy with another series. When that series was completed, I began thinking about those requests and decided to write two more books and make it into a trilogy. I was surprised to see how quickly readers learned to love this series.

FoxwebWhat is the theme of the series?

Freedom! Liberty! It’s also a tender love story. Romance with adventure is my favorite genre.

What inspired you to write these books? You said you had a lot of fun writing them. Why is that?

The Rebel Series was inspired by the stories of the American patriots who fought to be free from the dictatorship and tyranny of a king. It’s a theme that is dear to me. Liberty is something that I cherish. It’s a precious gift given to us by those who fought so valiantly. When I read the stories of the American Revolution, my heart swells with gratitude for those loyal patriots. When I look at our flag and pledge allegiance to it, tears well up in my eyes. When I listen to The Star Spangled Banner or God Bless the U.S.A., I get choked up. Especially when it’s sung by a choir. Why did I have fun writing these stories? Because I love romance and adventure and mystery.

Is there one main character throughout or characters that spin off from earlier books?

There are characters from book one that appear in book two. Likewise with book three.

Should a beginning writer set out to write a series or not?

If readers love a certain book and rave over it, then I would suggest writing a sequel. When I really love a story, I always wish that the author would continue with another book.
