D’Ann Lindun

Average Rating:

Falling in love with romance novels the summer before sixth grade, D’Ann Lindun never thought about writing one until many years later when she took a how-to class at her local college. She was hooked! She began writing and never looked back. Romance appeals to her because there's just something so satisfying about writing a book guaranteed to have a happy ending. D’Ann’s particular favorites usually feature cowboys and the women who love them. This is probably because she draws inspiration from the area where she lives, Western Colorado, her husband of twenty-nine years and their daughter. Composites of their small farm, herd of horses, five Australian shepherds, a Queensland heeler, eight ducks and cats of every shape and color often show up in her stories!

Q: If wishes were horses and beggars could ride, what kind of horse would you ride? 

A: We own 14 horses, so I’d pick one of them, a quarter horse or a paint. I prefer red duns, a peachy-red color. I have an old mare, Fawn, who is my favorite, and Cinnamon, the young replacement horse.


Q: What celeb would you like to run away with?

A: Vince Gill! That voice! Those eyes! And he’s funny as all get out. I was heartbroken when they took him off as host of the CMAs.


Q: Do you work on more than one story at a time?

A: I work on anywhere from one to three stories at once. If I get a little stuck, I change. Invariably, this clears my head, and I can figure out the hole or block on the other.


Q: If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be? Would you write orread there, or do something else? 

A: I've answered this before, but I would go close to home, to the Colorado Rockies, on a horse camping trip. I would do a lot of riding, some reading and nap!


Q: If you were a t-shirt, what would you say?

A: A friend asked me this for a blog, but I think it bears repeating.... Cowgirl Up! I think that says it all. When you get knocked down, get up, get back on and move out.


Q: Describe a perfect non-writing day.

A: Herding cows with my dad on a fall day, when the sun is glinting off the red and gold aspen leaves. Working my dogs, riding a good horse. Or trail riding with my daughter, taking the dogs, roasting hot dogs over a fire. Nothing better.
