Me: Tell me about an experience that had a profound impact on your life?

Linda: There have been so many – being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, finally publishing my first book or making the New York Times bestseller list. It was very difficult to choose one. But I think what had the biggest impact on my life was surviving a devastating tornado and the aftermath that followed. The tornado happened in 1979 in Wichita Falls, Texas. It was a mile wide and barreled right through our house. My husband and I barely had time to get our two kids and baby into a hallway. I knew it was going to be bad. We laid on top of the children and I didn’t see any way of making it out alive. The deafening sound, the walls buckling, the roof and debris raining down on top of us. It seemed like we laid there a lifetime with our house disintegrating around us but I know it was probably five minutes or less. When it was over, we dug out from under the mountain of debris. Devastation lay as far as I could see. For all I knew the whole town was gone. The wind had sucked the shoes off my oldest children’s feet but, except for a minor cut on top of my baby’s head, we were all unhurt. We lost every single thing we owned and were homeless for a year, living with first one relative then another. We were dependent on family for even the basic necessities. I learned to appreciate the small things more and be grateful for a place to lay my head. I worried about my older children. They slept fully clothed, including their shoes, every night for about a year, afraid that the tornado would come again and they wanted to be ready. Such a horrible, horrible time of displacement. I came away with a greater sympathy for the homeless because I knew what it was like.

 

Me: What personality trait of yours helps you most as an author?

Linda: I have this dogged persistence and when I get my teeth in something, I won’t let go or give up. This pushes me forward and provides the drive I need to keep writing. And it’s why I won’t let MS rule my life.

 

Me: What personality trait of yours hinders you most as an author?

Linda: I’m a perfectionist and more than a little OCD. That need to make things perfect slows me down. I keep going back and going over what I’ve already written instead of moving forward. I’m working to change this and it is getting better.

 

Me: What was your high point as a writer—a time when you were happiest, on cloud nine, flying high? What happened?

Linda: I had always dreamed of making the New York Times bestseller list. Man, I wanted that. So in 2011, I finally made it with A Texas Christmas. It didn’t matter that it was an anthology. I made it! Talk about being excited. I walked around for months with my feet off the ground.

 

Me: What was your low point as a writer—a time when you questioned your path, a time when you felt really crappy about your writing? What happened? How did you get over it?

Linda: The lowest point I’ve been was in 2006 following the death of my husband. I just didn’t see how I could go on and the truth is, for the first 8 months I prayed to die every night when I went to sleep. All the words were frozen in my head. I couldn’t even write emails. I stopped living. I’m grateful that I didn’t have a contract to fulfill.

That was a blessing and allowed me to heal without pressure. I had just dropped into a dark pit and climbing out was almighty hard. Slowly, I began to hear the stories in my head again. Then writer friends of mine, Jodi Thomas and Phyliss Miranda, called in June the next year with an offer to join them in writing an anthology for Kensington. I was really scared that I couldn’t deliver but I said yes. We went on to publish five more and then I was strong enough to resume writing full length novels.

 

Me: Which of your characters are you most like and why?

Linda: I’m most like Jessie Foltry in my latest book Knight on the Texas Plains. She’s faced unbelievable heartache and trials but refuses to let her past rule her life. She has a lot of love she’s aching to give and her strength and dogged determination push her forward and reach for the man whose arms she can’t forget.

 

Me: Who is your book boyfriend?

Linda: That would have to be Luke Weston in To Marry a Texas Outlaw – Book #3 Men of Legend that comes out in November. Luke is a wounded soul. He killed his first man at fourteen and has been through sheer hell. My heart went out to this man, I ached over each bitter disappointment. He’s an outlaw but he’s trying very hard to change so he won’t bring shame to the family he just learned he has. The need to belong goes bone deep. He yearns to claim the Legend name and accept his birthright but he can’t until he straightens out his life. I see such honor and love in him, hidden beneath his hard exterior. He’s full of so much regret and longing for all he’s been denied. I just love the depth of his heart.

 

Me: What is your life’s motto? Why does it speak to you?

Linda: Always do your best and when life knocks you down, get right back up. It reminds me to keep trying and pushing forward even when trials come.

Always do your best and when life knocks you down, get right back up. @lbroday #AmWriting #AuthorontheCouch Click To Tweet

Me: Tell me a little bit about your Historical Western Romance novel KNIGHT ON THE TEXAS PLAINS!


Linda: Duel McClain has lost everything he’s ever loved: his wife, his son, his sense of self. But when a strange twist of fate—and a poker game he’ll never forget—leaves an innocent little girl in his care, Duel vows to defend his new family to his very last breath. If only he knew a single thing about taking care of babies…

Just as Duel swears his life can’t get any more complicated, a beautiful woman stumbles into the light of his campfire, desperate for help. Jessie Foltry is hungry, tired, and running for her life. She agrees to help Duel care for the child in exchange for his protection, even as she fights to guard her broken heart. But Duel will do whatever it takes to make Jessie see that the Texas plains have more than one kind of knight, and perhaps their salvation is closer than either of them could have dreamed…

 

Me: Share a little of KNIGHT ON THE TEXAS PLAINS with us.

Linda:
In the midst of the blaze of color, the tall figure of Duel stood alone, facing the haunting demons that almost had destroyed his will to live. Head bowed, he knelt, then sat cross-legged amid the wildflowers that blanketed the grave. Not strong enough yet, she sensed, to slay the demons. Instead, he sized them up in the true fashion of a gunfighter who eyed his enemies before a duel.

Maybe someday her brave knight would fight that battle—and win. For Marley Rose’s sake, Jessie prayed that day would come soon.

“He’ll love you like a daughter, little one,” she murmured against Marley’s soft black curls. “I know he will, even though his heart still aches with pain.”

“Pa pa.” The child gently patted the windowpane. Her serious expression suggested understanding despite the impossibility of it.

* * *
I love this section of the book because it provides the catalyst for change. Duel says goodbye to his old life here and is finally able to put aside the wife and child he lost. He’s able to focus on being a husband and father to Jessie and the child he rescued. The depth of his heart amazes me.

  17. Maxie Anderson - Aug 19, 2017 Reply

    Hi Linda. So very glad that your family were all okay after the tornado. They are horrible. GOD was not ready for your family to leave this earth. Sorry about the MS. Glad you are still writing books. I love westerns and also Texas. My cowboy passed away 20 years ago, 1996. You never stop missing them. Just won Knight on the Texas Plains. Need to get started on it. Wish you would come to Pasadena, Tx. Love this picture of you. Put it with my Photos. Take care, Hugs!!

    • Linda Broday - Aug 20, 2017 Reply

      Hi Maxie…….Thank you so much for taking a moment to come by. You’re so sweet. I always hesitate talking about the things that have happened to me because I know other people go through similar trials and tribulations. It’s called life. Mine is no worse than anyone else’s. It’s what you choose to do with those problems that arise that makes you who you are. I’m sorry about losing your cowboy. It sure makes life lonely. I hope you enjoy Knight on the Texas Plains. Love you much!

  18. Phyliss Miranda - Aug 18, 2017 Reply

    Hi Linda, what a great blog. I appreciate you telling about your MS and how its affected you over the years. You are a survivor, for sure! I also think it was brave to show so much emotion in your story about the Wichita Falls tornado. Thanks for sharing so much of yourself in such an honest, heroic way. Much love, P

    • Linda Broday - Aug 18, 2017 Reply

      Hi Phyliss…….Thanks for coming, friend. You know I never like to talk about this stuff. I’m nothing extraordinary. Lots of people go through similar trials. And it doesn’t define who I am. They are only things that happened and I overcame. Love you, too.

      Hi Kai W…….Thank you so much for coming and for liking the interview. You know, the best thing with books is that they never spoil or have an expiration date. Maybe one day you’ll pick one up. Hugs!

      Hi Jennifer……I’m really glad you enjoyed my interview and learning more about me. I write down to earth people who all have dreams, some of them shattered, and they want better for themselves. If you like historical western romance, you’ll enjoy any of these. My stories all have life changing events with humor mixed in throughout. And they all have happy endings. Have fun finding the books that can satisfy.

      Hi Shannon…….I’m so glad you stopped by and that you liked the interview. I love writing books set in 1800s Texas. My characters are like you and I. They’re thrust into dangerous situations that call for split second decisions. Knight on the Texas Plains was inspired by a true event in my childhood when I learned my playmate from next door had been won in a poker game. She used to cry and tell me one day she’d find her real parents and ask them why they couldn’t love her. I vowed to give her a happy life even if it was in fiction. I think she’d be happy. Good luck in the drawing!

    New to the Broday world, I have read more, faster and in anticipation more than all my previous years in other genre. She captivates my attention with real history of my Texas. The emotion is heartfelt. The violence gut renching and true. The relationships engaging. I am a permanent new fan. Keep writing. I will always want more. Thank you.

    • Linda Broday - Aug 17, 2017 Reply

      Hi Jerry Lynn Hill…….Thank you for your kind words. I’m very grateful to fans like you who eagerly snatch up each new release. Texas is not just the place where I live–it flows in my blood and I feel such a deep love for this state. Which of course bleeds over into my stories. I can’t tell you how often I’ve had to stop and laugh with my characters. Or the boxes of Kleenex I’ve used during the course of writing each book. There is no way I can ever stop writing–unless they cut off my hands. Even then I’ll find a way. I write for you and other readers who await each new story. Thank you again. Your comments mean so much to me.

    Hello Linda,
    I admire you for surpassing everything life’s thrown at you. I’m sorry about your husband.
    Though I don’t know at what age you started writing, somehow your interview has been an inspiration to me. At 60 years of age and endless stress-inducing situations, I feel like I’m ready to tackle a manuscript that has been sitting idle for 5 years already.
    Thank you,
    Marie

      Hi Marie…..I’m so glad you stopped by. Most days I don’t feel like an inspiration to anyone but I’m happy you think so. Mostly it’s putting one foot in front of the other as I’ve done most of my life. Yes! Please do get that manuscript out and get it finished. Nothing can be accomplished by letting it sit. If I can do this, you can too! Thank you so much for coming.

    Everyday, I learn a little more about you, and what makes you you, and it is all if your life experiences, and what you have done to get over the bad times. You haven’t allowed the bad times define you, but have let them strengthen you.
    And have any of your characters ever been given OCD?
    You know I live you and your writing, and it is a pleasure and joy to read your books.

    • Linda Broday - Aug 17, 2017 Reply

      Hey, Veda!! Wow, great to see you. Thank you for coming. I’m glad you learned a little more. Actually quite a bit more. I reveal things here that I don’t usually talk about. But no, I don’t wallow in my misfortune or twist of fate. I don’t have time for that and it won’t accomplish anything anyway. It’s best to move past whatever happens and make my life count for something. I just want to matter to someone, you know. That’s the bottom line. Yes, I have given OCD to a character. Actually, it’s Marley Rose in Book #3 of this series that will come out next year. She really has OCD bad. Can’t stand wrinkles, crooked picture frames, or anything out of place. You’ll see. Love you, lady!

Everyone has trials and disappointments then rally to persevere. Being able to put that into my stories with characters who ache and bleed for better is what makes my books what they are. And boy do these Legend men ride through the fire! I admire how they meet trouble head-on and keep riding even though they know pain and possibly death awaits. In The Heart of a Texas Cowboy, Houston Legend is up against some of the most ruthless outlaws I’ve ever written. The leader is a sociopath and when you mix crazy with blood lust….that’s hard to defeat. But he and Lara Boone do. They fiercely protect their family and the cattle drovers with everything they have. I’m just loving writing this Men of Legend series. The conclusion with Book #3 releases in November. The illegitimate outlaw brother finally gets what he yearns for with love in the bargain.

    Thanks again for having me and letting readers get a peek into my mind. 🙂

        Abbie, I’m glad you enjoyed my interview. You mentioned a few days ago of hearing about that Wichita Falls tornado. You know, as scary as the tornado was, the aftermath was the worst part. No one tells you how to survive that and where to go. But it gave me the strength I needed for things down the road.
