Instructor Linda Palmer’s 8th mystery novel for Berkley Prime Crime (Pie a la Murder, written under her pen name, “Melinda Wells”) will be published on July 5 of next year, and her 9th book, Seven Layer Death, is scheduled for publication in early 2012. Linda is the winner of the UCLA Extension Department of the Arts Instructor of the Year Award in Creative Writing for 2010.

Despite being under contract to write one novel a year, she states emphatically, “I will continue to teach in the Writers’ Program as long as they’ll have me because of my joy in watching the writers in my classes get better and better.”
