Here's what you say about us...

LINDA FINLAY lives on the Devonshire coast and is the author of seven novels. From lace making to growing Devon Violets, each one is based on a local craft which, in order to write authentically, she has learnt to do herself. However, it is people and their problems that make for good story writing and, with so much interesting material to work with, it is easy for Linda to let her imagination run as wild as the West Country landscape which has inspired her writing.
