About the Author
Gail suspected early in life that one of her Gemini personalities was a writer. The challenge was finding out what kind of stories she wanted to write. Blessed with a vivid imagination, she tried her hand at several different genres, but it wasn't until she completed her first Regency-set romance that she knew she'd found what she was looking for. The elegant language, the history and the social structure of the time all appealed to her in a way nothing else had. And having been born in Wales—and able to explore the magnificent castles and country houses dotting the landscape—she had no trouble imagining her characters wearing period costume and falling in and out of love within those ivy-covered walls.
Now an award-winning author of eighteen historical and contemporary novels, Gail makes her home on Vancouver Island, where there aren't as many castles, but where high tea is still served on fine china and you're just as likely to hear a British accent as a Canadian one. A confessed chocoholic, she loves to cook, and she travels as often as she can. (A cooking class in Tuscany would have to be about as good as it gets!) She is also an avid reader, a certified scuba diver and a poor but persistent golfer.
