Welcome to my blog. Previously I have blogged as Evelynspottygardenblog and as Linda Gruchy’s Essex Murder Mysteries, but recent technical hitches means I have moved my blog to here, and might as well combine them. I am still learning with this blog so it may be some time before my blog settles down, especially as I am a technophobe.
I have had short stories published in women’s magazines under the name Linda Gruchy, and Linda Priestley, and non-fiction under the name Linda Priestley (though sometimes my name is misspelled Priestly). Because of the success of Death in Spigg’s Wood, my first gritty crime e-book novel, I have decided to write crime under the name Linda Gruchy, and lighter-hearted Romance etc as Linda M Priestley. As you can see from the images on the side bars I have two crime novels and an anthology of short stories out as Linda Gruchy, and a novella as Linda M Priestley. I hope this won’t confuse people, but I thought it best to do this so I avoid disappointing someone looking for a gritty crime novel if they find it’s Romance, and not shocking the socks off a reader looking for a sweet Romance if they download my gritty crime.
