In Memoriam: Linda Cajio

Romance Writers of America is saddened to learn of the death of former association president Linda Cajio.

Cajio was the author of more than thirty romance novels and had been a member of RWA since 1984. She served as RWA vice president in 1990 and as president from 1990–92. In an interview with past presidents, Cajio recalled when she “received a compliment from RWA’s attorney after my last general annual meeting, that the work I and my Board had done, and Emma’s [Merritt] before me, had put RWA on a much more professional footing as a national organization.”

RWA extends its condolences to Linda Cajio’s family and friends.

Cajio’s obiturary may be found at In lieu of flowers, the family has requested memorial contributions may be made to the American Diabetes Association.
