THE PLACEHOLDER, a mash-up of Thelma and Louise besties meet Eat, Pray, Love and Me Before You. 


Middle-aged Serenade Kincaid has lost everything: her stepchildren, her house, half her earnings, her sports car, and her husband, all to a decades younger–and more fertile–woman.


Sera now drinks boxed wine from a plastic cup as she attempts to start over from her new home, a seedy motel, as she kills time scrolling dating apps in search of a semi-decent-not-mass-murderer-please-just-spend-time-with-me port in the storm.


As Sera discontentedly leapfrogs through men, her snarky, meddling boss and sometimes-best friend, Carolyn, encourages her to focus more on finding a friend with benefits, just until Prince Charming comes along, of course. Zac fits the bill. 


He’s a self-proclaimed “unsuitable boyfriend” who looks to have jumped straight from the pages of a romance novel. Zac also insists he, too is only looking for some fun, which is perfect for Sera. 


Cue the booty calls. And wow, are they hitting the spot. But just when Sera is starting to figure herself out, get her life back on track and think she may have found someone, life takes a sharp left. And all fun and games come to a screeching halt. 


Now, Sera, Zac, and Carolyn must race against time to disentangle their web of lies and deceit before it’s too late.


The Placeholder is an unconventional, unforgettable, unputdownable story of loss and love.

About Lynda Wolters

Lynda was born and raised in a tiny farming community of 400 in northern Idaho. She worked on the family farm, with her first job being picking rocks out of the fields with her dad and grandpa. She graduated to driving both the truck and combine during harvest season. After high school, Lynda traveled to New York to be a nanny for a few months before moving to Las Vegas to further her schooling.

Lynda has worked in the legal field for 30+ years and enjoys ballroom and swing dancing, horseback riding, kayaking, and river rafting. She has a heart for people and regularly volunteers. Following a diagnosis of incurable cancer, Lynda began writing. Her first non-fiction book, Voices of Cancer, was released in 2019 (a piece was done by Jane Brody on January 20, 2020, and published in the NYT, and a grant purchased the Chinese translation rights, and Voices of Cancer is now offered to medical students in the Tawain area), and her second non-fiction book, Voices of LGBTQ+, was released in 2020.

The Placeholder, Lynda’s debut novel, will be released on November 1, 2022. Lynda currently has a middle-grade historical fiction manuscript about her in-laws, who were children in the Netherlands during WW2, in editing.
