Ginny Aiken, a former newspaper reporter, lives in Pennsylvania with her engineer husband and their three younger sons--the oldest married and flew the coop. Born in Havana, Cuba, raised in Valencia and Caracas, Venezuela, she discovered books early, and wrote her first novel at age fifteen while she trained with the Ballets de Caracas, later known as the Venezuelan National Ballet. She burned that tome when she turned a "mature" sixteen. Stints as reporter, paralegal, choreographer, language teacher, and retail salesperson followed. Her life as wife, mother of four boys, and herder of their numerous and assorted friends, brought her back to books and writing in search of her sanity. She's now the author of twenty-one published works, a frequent speaker at Christian women's and writer's workshops, but has yet to catch up with that elusive sanity.
