A Rhode Island native, Gail Eastwood spent almost twenty years writing as a journalist, theatre critic and PR consultant, among other jobs, before she finally sat down to write and sell her first novel, achieving her childhood dream. That first book was recognized with several honors including The Golden Leaf Award for Best Regency, 1994, and Gail hasn't looked back since. All of her books have been nominated for awards, and for two years in a row Gail was one of Romantic Times Magazine’s nominees for Career Achievement in the Regency category.
Hailed by reviewers as brilliantly versatile and a master at painting pictures of Regency life, Gail is enjoying a growing reputation as a writer who pushes her genre to new levels with her emphasis on emotional depth and unusual plots. She lives in Wakefield, RI, with her actor/attorney husband and their two sons, and teaches Writing the Romance for Brown University. She holds a B.A. in Comparative Literature and Sociology from Case Western Reserve University in Ohio. She loves writing and researching, but stubbornly refuses to give up her interests in theatre, dance, costuming, and the medieval period, even though she now has no time!
