The Open Book

Linda Lee Kane, author of "Chilled to the Bones"

Stephen H. Provost

Meet Linda Lee Kane, author of the horror novel Chilled to the Bones (Krullstone Publishing). Linda is the first participant in The Open Book, a new feature in which I interview authors about their latest works. I had the pleasure of doing a joint book signing with Linda at Petunia's Place in Fresno late in 2015, when I was promoting Fresno Growing Up and she had just written The Black Madonna. Here's what she had to say in our interview.

The Author

Name, age and occupation: Linda Lee Kane, 65, and a retired school psychologist.

Where and with whom do you live? I live in Fresno, California part of the year and in Pacific Grove, a few months out of the year with my husband of forty-five years.

If you could co-write a book with any author, living or dead, whom would you choose? Easy, Truman Capote.

Why do you write? In part because I enjoy the process, the quiet, delving into my mind and others for possibilities.

Where do you write? In my office where I can look out onto a lake.

Chilled To The Bones is a great young adult murder mystery. ... The book is pieced together well with a perfect balance of fiction as well as historical material from the American Revolutionary War.
— Bryant C., Amazon review

Favorite board, card or video game: Checkers

The Book

Genre and length? YA Historical Mystery 180 pages.

When and where does it take place? 2017 in Setauket, New York

How did you come up with the title? It has ghost from the Culper Spy Ring, and an British Soldier from the American Revolutionary war

What inspired you to write it? There are so many women, girls who helped in the fight for freedom but have never been recognized in the history books kids grow up reading. 

Is there a sequel in the works? There is a sequel; this time we’ll be going through one of the portals to England.    

Where, how can you get it? The easiest way to get the book is through Amazon.

What would you select as your book’s theme song? Who would you choose to write the musical score? Bear McCleary as the writer and the theme song from Black Sails.

Who would want to ban it? Some of the Christian Church because there are ghosts and vampires.

To whom did you dedicate it and why? My books are always dedicated to my family and friends who are there to support me.

This is a gripping novel. Linda Kane has also provided historical data at the end of the book, alerting readers to unsung heroes and heroines of the war.

Who would play your protagonist in a movie? The girl who is the protagonist in Strange Things on Netflix. She is an incredible actress.
