Linda Baten Johnson has spent many hours packing and unpacking as she and her husband George have lived in 15 different places in the United States and they enjoyed a three year assignment in England. In between moves, Linda earned her Master of Arts degree in English and history, worked as a Realtor, a teacher, and logged many volunteer hours.
Linda taught middle school students in the U.S. and in the American Community School in Cobham, England, and her students inspired her to write skits which incorporated learning and performing. She’s published fifty readers’ theater scripts, magazine and newspaper articles, devotionals, and puzzles.
Her books include middle grade novels, The Friendship Train, Mystery of Desolation Point and, with Katherine Loughmiller, Homer the Racehorse, a chapter book for younger readers. She wrote Kathleen's Vision in the Orphan Train Riders Series, and Tiny's Emancipation, Elsie and the Hurricane, and Henry Goes to Texas in the Young Texans Series. Her romance novellas include Healing Scars, Her Christmas Cowboy, and Harvey House Girl, Recipe for Love, Searching for Joy, Forget Me Not, Magnolia Morning, and Cocoa and Christmas Crackers. In addition to writing, Linda finds time to golf, travel, read, and be amazed by six lively grandchildren
