Linsey Miller is a reputed American writer of fantasy, young adult, and thriller stories. She is particularly famous for writing the Mask of Shadows series. Linsey has also written a couple of widely popular standalone books called The Game and Belle Revolte, both of which were published in 2020. She originally hails from Arkansas and was brought up there by her parents. Before trying her luck at writing novels, she was employed at several other jobs, including neuroscience lab assistant, pharmacy technician, crime lab intern, etc. Linsey is represented by a literary agent named Rachel Brooks at the Bookends Literary Agency. She holds a degree in Creative Writing (MFA) from Wichita State University. Currently, Linsey is involved in writing the next books of her career based on magic and science.

Every time she sits down to write, she needs a cup of coffee by her side or else she finds it very difficult to focus. In her debut series, Linsey has described the story of a genderfluid robber, who fights their way through different auditions to become the next royal killer-on-hire. In her recent standalone novel, Belle Revolte, Linsey has mentioned the life story of a couple of girls, unimaginable magic, and a revolt. Author Linsey says that she has been writing since her childhood days. She was lucky that her parents had an interest in reading and would often take her to a nearby library in her locality. However, Linsey never thought while growing up that writing was something that people did to earn money.

An interest in medical science enabled her to apply for medical schools, but she ended up blowing it up. One of the interviewers told her that she wanted to write stories. This gave her a reality check and set her up on the trail of researching and reading as much as she could. Shortly after, Linsey even started writing. Linsey thinks that there are a lot of factors that make a story compelling to the readers. The factors also differ from reader to reader. For her, the thing that made a book compelling was how immersive a story was. Among the many things that inspired Linsey to write her first book was her liking for assassins. Also, she wanted to explore the ways in which people get affected by moral choices. And at the same time, she also wanted to tell a story about rogues having a golden heart.

Linsey wanted to show how difficult life can be when people have to sacrifice certain parts for some others. Also, she had the urge to develop a fantasy world where some important events have happened in the past, leaving the heroes to deal with them in the present situation. Before Linsey began writing her debut book, she wondered a lot about how she would describe the main character, Sal. Linsey had the idea that it was important to depict gender non-conforming and non-binary characters in the book and so, she ended up describing Sal as a genderfluid character. Also, Linsey felt it was necessary for her to depict the book’s world as an actual world. So, she set the goal of including queer romance and characters of color in the story beforehand and worked on it accordingly. Linsey’s happiness knew no bounds when she learned that her first novel has become worldwide successful. It motivated her to keep writing and developing exciting stories for her fans. Linsey is excited to come up with many more interesting stories in the future and achieve more success in the times to come.

The Mask of Shadows book series written by author Linsey Miller is comprised of 2 books released between 2017 and 2018. The primary characters mentioned in this series by Linsey include Sallot Leon, Elise, Queen, and a few others. Linsey has mentioned Sallot Leon as a thief, who is good at heart and genderfluid. The debut book of this series is entitled ‘Mask of Shadows’. It was released by the Sourcebooks Fire publication in 2017. The book opens by showing that genderfluid Sallot Leon has spent many years working as a good thief and robbing the upper class. Now, he wants to escape his life’s drudgery and join the society of the nobles and the upper class, who destroyed their childhood home. Later, Sallot Leon comes across an advertisement that calls for auditions to become a member of the personal assassins of the Queen called The Left Hand.

They regards it as a respectable position and sees it as the first step towards his goal of transforming their life. Also, Sallot Leon wants to use this opportunity to enter the court and take their revenge. But, what Sallot does not know is that they will have to indulge in a fight to death at the audition against lethal apothecaries, vicious former soldiers, and clever acrobats. Their childhood as a simple thief doesn’t qualify Sallot Leon for the dangerous trials. But, their shocking victory at the competition surprises everyone. It also wins Sallot the love of a beautiful court scribe named Elise. Together, they begin to dream of a happy life away from all harm. But, Sallot Leon needs to survive and succeed in his goal before they could cherish the happy future with Elise.

The second volume of the series is known as ‘Ruin of Stars’. It was also published in 2018 by the Sourcebooks Fire publication. In this thrilling second installment and conclusion of the duology series, Linsey has described a tale of shadows, magic, and revenge. The novel opens by showing that Sallot Leon has finally achieved the power and prestige that he wanted by becoming one of the elite assassins of the Queen. He also has the opportunity to hunt and kill every lord who destroyed their family and home. But first, Sallot must find out the real culprits. They enlists the help of their old friends and foes. In their determination to get their revenge, Sallot Leon seems to ignore the queen’s growing distaste and the imprisonment of Elise at the hands of her father. At the same time, Sallot learns about something sinister going on in the north. Shadows have returned, resulting in the spreading of magic and the disappearance of children. And as Sallot Leon finally finds the lords responsible for ruining their homeland and killing their family, they learns truths and secrets that cannot be overlooked or forgotten.
