“Tidbits of my life:
I grew up an only child in a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Married to my college sweetheart, we have two amazing daughters and three precious grandchildren. When I traveled to Scotland in 2014, I fell in love with the countryside and the history. That excursion and the stunning views of places such as Loch Garry (see my website: http://www.audreyabbottauthor.com) certainly enhanced my writing of The Lady’s Desire.
I am a librarian, a writer, a reader of books.
Actually, I have an unhealthy obsession with books. When I start a good book I simply cannot put it down. The dust bunnies may be calling, but I manage to ignore them…
My other secret passions are bacon, caffeine, chocolate, and strawberries! The four basic food groups! Did I mention Chocolate? Did you know that December 16th is National Chocolate Covered Anything Day? Now that is a holiday almost everyone can embrace and celebrate!!!
My favorite author: Charles Dickens, of course! Bytheby: Dickens visited Pittsburgh in 1842! Yes. He was really here!! Sadly, I only missed his arrival by 176 years!
What do I write? I write adult historical suspense romance, YA historical fiction, and nonfiction. I am a member of Romance Writers of America, Three Rivers Romance Writers, the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and Pennwriters.
I hope you enjoy the Abbey Mead series, beginning with The Lady’s Desire.”
