In memory of Linda Lewis

Linda wrote five romantic comedy for Silhouette as Linda Lewis, and two time-travel romances for Zebra as Linda Kay. She is also known as Dixie Kane and her real name was Linda Kay West.

Linda Lewis graduated from the Southern Methodist University Law School. She served as an assistant U.S. Attorney, an assistant District Attorney, and a tax court litigator. A retired attorney, she lived on the North Shore of Lake Ponchartrain, across the Causeway Bridge from New Orleans. Linda was a member of Romance Writers of America, Novelists, Inc., The Authors Guild and Crescent City Writers. West passed away on March 1, 2004, and in her memory, the Southern Louisiana Chapter of the Romance Writers of America established the Dixie Kane Memorial Contest. The contest was put on hold when Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana. It has recently resumed.
