About the Author

Linda J Wright is an award-winning Canadian author and animal advocate. Born in Ontario, she grew up in a military family, and spent part of her childhood in France. She studied English and Philosophy at Carleton University in Ottawa and at the University of Toronto. After a brief stint as a high school English teacher, she worked at the University of Toronto as an editor, then moved to Victoria, British Columbia, and on to the United States. Along the way, she published dozens of short stories, several of which won awards including the Writers of the Future Award, and the Aeon Award: both for speculative fiction. In the nineties, she received three California Arts Council Artist-in-Residence grants to teach short story writing to GATE students and won a California Association of Teachers of English Excellence Award for those classes. Publisher's Weekly found "Stolen", the first book in the Kieran Yeats series to be "a superb series kickoff" and the book was a finalist in the Lambda Literary Awards in 2018. Publisher's Weekly also said: "Wright, who has been involved in animal advocacy for 30 years combines her passionate commitment to animal rights with a riveting whodunit." The second book in the series, "Sacrificed", is Linda's twelfth published novel. An animal advocate, and sometime activist, Linda has been involved in animal welfare for nearly three decades. In 1990, she founded the rescue organization The Cat People, and served as its first President. Since then, she has served on the boards of several animal welfare organizations and has been a consultant to dozens of animal rescue/welfare groups. In 1999 she was part of the team at the Free Willy Keiko Foundation that rescued Keiko the orca (the real Free Willy) and rehabilitated him in Newport.
