Welcome to


Author, Linda Mims


LINDA MIMS started creating tales in her head as a child. At age 12, she knew she was onto something when she sold a story to her grandmother for a quarter, but it was her dad’s more practical advice, to get a good education and find a real job, that she followed.

After retiring from her “real job” as an educator, Linda began her writing career as an indie author. The tale of The Neon Houses was born out of a careless comment that people had lost interest in reading. The joke was that decades from now we’d need to hold reading nights in neighborhood parks for citizens who wouldn’t be able to read.

Linda rolled that idea around in her head until it turned into a whole society of have-nots. Once the idea got rolling, she worked nonstop until she’d finished the first draft. Writing is now her real job!

Linda Mims resides in a small suburban town 30 miles outside of Chicago, IL where she likes to cook, garden, and blog, sometimes simultaneously. She is married to her long-time love, has two grown daughters and one bossy, bichon-pom, Alexis.

      1. Most welcome Linda. When I say I’m going to read something – I do it. Reading your book was what I needed to design a banner for you as I knew your book so well by then. It was only natural for the banner I made to come out like it did, and with my own quote. I love sharing your book review each day on Twitter.

  1. Hi Linda! I finally found my way over here so I could keep up with your tour. Congrats again on your new book. I’m in the process of reading it and it is quite a story already. Good Luck!

      1. Thanks, Nonnie! I had another look and the front image says it all – connecting THE NEON HOUSES title firmly with the trailer. Not to be unfair to the next in line on my TBRLIST, but I’ll have to read Linda Mims first, now.😊 Thanks again for a great blog tour and reminders, as well as a great trailer!


          1. I’m hoping to get funds together sometime this year to get 4WillsPublishing to do a book trailer for me too! At the moment I’m having to get editing, formatting and proofreading done first, but after seeing your trailer, I’m more determined than ever to get one done this year! All the best till we chat again, Linda!

  2. Wishing you a wonderful tour, Linda. I enjoyed your first stop at Mar’s blog and look forward to the others. This book made an impression on me during the video blog block party and is on my TBR!
