Jodi Payne

Jodi spent years in the theater in New York and San Francisco presenting classical playwrights like Shakespeare, Chekhov, and Shaw for large audiences, as well as more edgy Fringe work in tiny black-box theaters. From these masters, she learned to appreciate and explore the humanity in her characters. Her men are imperfect but genuine, strong-willed but likeable; they are characters you can't help but fall in love with while they stumble along the way to happy ever after.

When writing, Jodi is frequently found wearing a scarf and sock monkey fingerless gloves in the winter, and near the sand with a view of the ocean in the summer. When she's not writing, Jodi mentors LGBTQ youth, enjoys movies, cop-dramas, attending Broadway shows and will drop everything for live music. Jodi lives and writes near New York City with her wife and family, which includes an enormous polydactyl cat.

Linchpin is a quick read that held my attention throughout the book.

This was very well written... There are a couple of sex scenes that were toasty hot [and] I liked the dynamic in the power struggle between Quinn and Tony. Short, fast and fun!
