Linda writes romance fiction from YA to adult, contemporary to fantasy.
Most Kage stories lean more toward the lighter, sillier side with a couple
of meaningful moments thrown in. Focuses more on entertainment value and emotional impact.
She likes the drama and crazy, over-the-top plots that make you cry, then laugh,
get mad then sigh happily. Most stories are explicit but a few are sex-free.
No dark or taboo topics, but many are not safe stories either.

I can't even narrow that down to one favorite author!
Favorite types of books: Romance, of course!
I started out loving authors like Sandra Brown
(she popped my romance book cherry!), Linda Howard,
Nora Roberts, Julie Garwood, Judith McNaught, LaVyrle Spencer.
After that, I went through a romantic suspense phase and fell for Suzanne Brockmann,
Karen Robards, Roxanne St. Claire, Tara Janzen, Cindy Gerard, and Gennita Low.
Then, along came my passion for historical romance, and hello Julia Quinn,
Lisa Kleypas, Elizabeth Hoyt, and Sabrina Jeffries.
My paranormal loves include Cassandra Gannon, Gena Showalter, J. R. Ward,
Lara Adrian, and Eve Langlais!
Young adult romance snagged me with authors like Simone Elkeles,
Katie McGarry, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Chelsea Fine, Huntley Fitzpatrick, and Jay McLean.
Tammara Webber, Colleen Hoover, Kristen Callihan, and Elle Kennedy
got me hooked on new adult romance!
I can't forget my favorite feel-good contemporary authors like Mia Sheridan,
Brittainy C. Cherry, Emma Chase, Aly Martinez, and Christina Lee.
And, of course, I love anything by Ada Frost.
I also like the books: Harry Potter series, To Kill a Mockingbird,
His Kiss by Melanie Marks, Losing It by Cora Carmack,
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, Bully, Tangled, Real, One-Week Girlfriend,
Ten Tiny Breaths, The Sweet Gum Tree, On Dublin Street, #Nerd, and The Hooker and the Hermit.
