Dr. Lin Stepp is a native Tennesseean, a business woman, and an educator. She is on the faculty part-time at Tusculum College. Her business background includes over 20 years in marketing, sales, production art, and regional publishing. She has editorial and writing experience in regional magazines and the academic field.
Each of her stand-alone novels in the Smoky Mountain series takes the reader to a new place in the mountains with a new story and new characters. In The Foster Girls (2009), Vivian Delaney hides from her past in a Wear's Valley rental house under a pseudonym, in Tell me About Orchard Hollow (2010) New Yorker Jenna Howell flees to the mountains to mend after marital betrayal, in For Six Good Reasons (2011) Alice Graham takes in six foster children she's unable to place as a social worker, and in Delia's Place (2012) socialite, Delia Walker finds a new life and new direction in her Aunt Dee's old cottage in Gatlinburg. In April 2013, Canterbury House Publishing released Stepp's fifth Smokies based novel, Second Hand Rose.
