Linda Alexander’s newest book, RELUCTANT WITNESS: ROBERT TAYLOR, HOLLYWOOD & COMMUNISM, is the bio of Hollywood’s Golden Era movie star, Robert Taylor, due out May 2008. Taylor starred in "Camille" with Greta Garbo, "Waterloo Bridge" with Vivien Leigh, and "Quo Vadis" with Deborah Kerr -- among many others. His involvement in the 1940s hysteria over communism in Hollywood forever branded him the ultra-conservative movie star to “name names.” Linda’s book finally sets the record straight.

Linda has published 4 other books—2 biographies and 2 novels of dark romantic suspense. A 1991 letter on psychological child abuse put her on the Oprah Show as a Featured Guest. For 20 years, she has freelanced for magazines such as Spotlight and Soap Opera Update, and newspapers including The Washington Times and Baton Rouge Advocate. She has interviewed actors Jim Varney, Robert Stack, Michael Zaslow, and her teenage heartthrob, Michael Cole, from 1970s “The Mod Squad;” also, singers Gary Puckett, Tiny Tim, and others.

Terry Taylor, Robert Taylor’s son, said about Linda's book on his dad, " . . . no better author to write it." An editor from a prominent publisher said, “I felt . . . I was sitting in on a Barbara Walters interview.”

Linda speaks publicly on: Living Large With Lupus; Journaling To Heal Wounds; Bridging The Color Line; You Are Who You Say You Are: Online Imaging; writing, and, of course, Robert Taylor! Visit Linda’s sites: http://www.lindajalexander.net and http://www.authorsden.com/lindajalexander.
