Her mother's killer may be on a spree again...and only Mari Alvarez can put the puzzle pieces together to put him away for good!

By day, Linda Hurtado Bond is an Emmy® and Edward R. Murrow award-winning journalist. By night, she’s an author of James Bond like adventures and heart-stopping thrillers, and she will be at Tombolo Books with fellow crime writer Tara Lush to talk about her latest novel All the Broken Girls!

By day, Linda Hurtado Bond is an award-winning journalist with Tampa’s Fox 13. By night, she’s an award-winning author of thrillers. She’s won 13 Emmy awards, numerous Society of Professional Journalists and Associate Press awards as well as a Florida Bar award and an Edward R. Murrow award. A breast cancer survivor, she’s also active in the Tampa community with the American Cancer Society, Hooked on Hope, and The Shoot for a Cure, raising money and awareness any chance she gets. Linda met her husband Jorge while on assignment in Cuba, covering Pope John Paul the Second's visit with Fidel Castro. Twenty-some years later they've raised five kids - a doctor, a nurse, a pilot, a paramedic firefighter, and an aspiring psychologist. Linda is a graduate of the University of Georgia, and her baby is heading to the rival University of Florida. A lover of drama and conflict (in books) Linda now has a divided house. It’s a busy life! But she also finds time for her passions, her husband Jorge, world travel, classic movies, and solving a good mystery.

Tara Lush is a Rita Award finalist, an Amtrak writing fellow, and a George C. Polk Award winning journalist. For the past decade, she's been a reporter with the Associated Press, covering crime, alligators, natural disasters, and politics. She also writes contemporary romance set in tropical locations. A fan of vintage pulp-fiction book covers, Sinatra-era jazz, and 1980s fashion, she lives with her husband and two dogs on the Gulf coast.
