L M WHITAKER (Linda) is an award-winning author of action thrillers, intricately plotted and laced with technological intrigue.
Her stories are founded on years of research and decades of work in computer technology, artificial intelligence, and other advanced data science. Like her heroine, she started her career with a PhD from The Georgia Institute of Technology.
Linda loves science inspired fiction…and fiction inspired science. When Linda co-founded a software company, she and each of her co-founders read Michael Crichton's Prey, which led them to build computer algorithms mimicking the complex systems found in nature…and nano-robot monster novels.
Linda resides with her husband in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. She likes running in the forest, gardening, cooking, and playing with her dog, Olive.
