Linda Sands isn't a genre writer. Her stories move beyond the confines of genre to encapsulate the human experience. From a 1970's Philadelphia drug dealer wanting to do the right thing--simply help someone, then get on with his life, to a nineteenth century misunderstood heroine who spills all her secrets on the day she buries her brother in Savannah, to a contemporary crime story in which everyone is seeking their identity-- even three dead girls.
Sands on the page is the stepchild of Dennis Lehane and Alice Hoffman, the second cousin once removed of Jodi Picoult and Nicole Krauss, the granddaughter of Lawrence Block, the twin of Lawrence Sanders that was never born.
Readers anxiously await the release of Grand Theft Cargo, the first book in the mystery series featuring tenacious trucker Jojo Boudreaux, a woman with the mouth of a sailor and the heart of a ... truck driver.
