The Lost State Writers Guild will meet March 1, 11:30am at Shoney's Restaurant in Bristol.
Linda Dobkins, writing as Jo Allison, is the award-winning author of four books in the Julia Nye Mystery Series and related short stories. The novels are set in 1910s St. Louis and highlight a bold heroine fighting the issues and prejudices of the day. The third book in the series, Heaven Will Protect the Working Girl, was judged Best Self-Published Novel by the James River Writers (Virginia) in 2016.
Linda/Jo drives family and librarians crazy with the depth of her research on the city and on the time period but delights readers who like their mysteries historical. She maintains a web page that highlights the setting at 1910-stlouis-by-jallison.com.
For more information, see joallisonauthor.com and oldunderwoodpublish.com. Linda lives in Bristol, Virginia.
