Linore Rose Burkard is a serious watcher of period films, a Janeite, and hopeless romantic. An award winning author best known for Inspirational Regency Romance, her first book opened the genre for the CBA.
Besides historical romance, Linore writes contemporary suspense (The Pulse Effex Series, as L.R. Burkard), contemporary romance (Falling In), and romantic short stories. Linore has a magna cum laude English Lit. degree from CUNY which she earned while taking herself far too seriously. She now resides in Ohio with her husband and family, where she turns her youthful angst into character or humor-driven plots.
Linore has been blessed and afflicted by her imagination all her life. At age nine she attempted her first novel as a way to channel wishful longings that real life didn't offer.
After college and marriage, she returned to writing novels. Her first book was written while toddlers crawled across her lap or in the evenings while her husband watched the kids. Harvest House published the first three books, a trilogy of Regency romance novels starting with Before the Season Ends. The PULSE EFFEX SERIES is her first YA suspense series.
Linore is the Vice President of Dayton Christian Scribes, a Regional Coordinator for CAN, (Christian Authors Network), and still homeschools her youngest daughter. She's active in her church, and loves to read, hike, cook, swim, and paint.
