Thomas Atkins is an attorney in Louisville. His wife Linda Y. Atkins is also his law partner (Atkins & Atkins) AND a legal writer. Before continuing with this post and in the interest of full disclosure , please note that Tom and I have some non-legal connections. Tom and I are military retirees, native West Virginians (I’m from Point Pleasant and Tom from Charleston), and graduates of Marshall University (We ARE Marshall!), as well as choosing Louisville as our adopted homes.
Although I knew Linda had written several books over the years, I just learned she has published a FOURTH book – “Deadline for Murder” in the Hillary Adams.
Rather than give my own plug, let me share the remarks and comments of others. I will purchase this book and read it. I might even go back and look at the earlier books in this ongoing legal series.
Here is a link to an interview (actually more of a conversation) with Lori Kommor of the Voice-Tribure – “Linda Atkins: Taking Legal Experience Into The World of Fiction”
As a prominent Louisville attorney, Linda Atkins has many experiences to draw upon. After working on a particularly intriguing case during the 1990s in eastern Kentucky, she was inspired to take those experiences and apply them to writing fiction. Her mystery series, featuring criminal defense attorney, Hilary Adams, takes readers on a roller coaster ride of suspense and mayhem as they follow Adams and a cast of colorful characters inside and outside of a fictional Louisville courtroom. Her fourth book in the series, “Deadline for Murder,” was released this week. I had a chance to talk to Atkins about her interest in writing, her love of Kentucky and her greatest challenges as an author.
