Early Life, Parents

Her father was Edwin Dennis Howard, a soldier in the U.S. Army, stationed in Germany, where she was born. The family moved about a great deal when she was young. Her father always dreamed of retiring to Hawaii and after he died in 1964, Lindsey and her mother settled there to honor him.

Education, Married

In 1970, when she was still in school, she married Ralph Bruce Lindsey, becoming a young housewife. The marriage continued, the couple residing in Hawaii and producing three children; Alfred, Joseph, and Garret, who already have made her a grandmother. After her husband’s death, Lindsey moved to Maine and did not remarry. She died on October 27, 2019, at the age of 67 from lung cancer.

Johanna Lindsey Writing career

Lindsey wrote his first book, Captive Bride, in 1977 “on a whim”. The book was a success, as were the forty-nine novels that followed. In 2006, more than fifty-eight million copies of his books had been sold worldwide and his work had been translated into twelve languages.
Due to their diversity of contexts, Lindsey’s work covers a number of Roman subgenres, including medieval, regency, western, Viking, and even science fiction. His most popular books are a series of Regency sagas on the fictional Malory family (see Family Tree).

Lindsey’s stories were heavily criticized for what were considered absurd and cliché characterizations, poor structure and rhythm, unrealistic layout and generally poor writing. They have also been accused of perpetuating outdated and problematic notions about sexual assault, the role of women in relationships and other cultures.

In April 2017, LilyCReads, a popular book vlogger on YouTube, reviewed Lindsey’s 1989 novel Savage Thunder, one of three in the author’s “Wyoming westerns” series. The video was called “This is literally the worst book I have ever read ..” and in twenty minutes, licensee Lily C mocked almost every aspect of the novel, both in writing and in messages.

The disputed messages in the video include a scene where the hero, a half-white, half-Native American adventurer, sexually touches the heroine while she is sleeping and, when she wakes up and questions her about it, tells her that it is his property and has been since it allowed him to sleep with her. Meanwhile, contempt is also reserved for the heroine, an English duchess, who describes her seduction of the hero as a “rape” (even if he has consented to sex) and strongly encourages her to dress less like an aboriginal and more like a white man for her.

The covers of Lindsey’s novels have been largely parodied, registering as they do with a tendency in romantic publishing to use flashy painted designs that feature a muscular male model (i.e. Fabio) with his exposed, dominant or otherwise dominant breast of women dressed in flowers ….

Johanna Lindsey Death and Cause of Death

Johanna Lindsey, whose best-selling romance novels told stories of unbridled passion, revenge, submission and abductions among aristocrats, debutantes, pirates, and fearless heroines, died on Oct. 27 in Nashua, N.H. She was 67.

The cause was complications of treatment for Stage 4 lung cancer, her son Alfred said. The family was too devastated by her death to announce it earlier, he said.
