Linda Heavner Gerald had a picture in her mind she could not shake.

The Port St. Joe resident had a recurring vision of a woman, walking down a street among older houses in Beaufort, South Carolina. There was a man on a balcony waving to her … and the vision in Gerald’s head was gone.

Only to reappear again and again.

So, the retired nurse decided to sit down and map out the details surrounding her vision and that became her first published book, “Beaufort Betrayal.”

That was roughly 18 months ago and since then Gerald has found a calling cranking out two more mysteries and a children’s book, all published and being sold throughout the world, Gerald said.

“I am the most unlikely person to write a book,” Gerald said with a laugh last week. “I feel my faith just set me up for this at this time.

“And here I am; I have my next book in my mind. I have had four books in a year and they are doing well. It is really amazing, this whole thing.”
