Meet Ginger
Ginger won her first writing contest with a short story about her puppy when she was 12 years old. Encouraged by winning a pen set, she decided to become a writer. This decision led her to take journalism and creative writing classes while in college. Her personal essays, short stories, and articles have appeared in various newspapers, magazines, and newsletters. In addition, she also worked as a clean up writer/copy editor on Federal Aviation Administration handbooks.

A history major in college, she married her love of storytelling with the past to write her first novel. Set in Roman England, not one of the many publishers she contacted fell in love with it. Several manuscripts later, a major publishing house published her two Civil War historical romances.

Ginger ventured into the Regency period with her third published novel. Two books and a short story marked the start of her ongoing contemporary sweet romance Tassasnoxie series. While her historical romances tend to be sensual and action-packed, her sweet romances, feature the lives and loves of everyday people living in the imaginary town of Tassanoxie, Alabama. The home of second chances at love, this small-town setting was an easy choice because Ginger lives in southeast Alabama with her husband and various rescued pets.

She also continues to write humorous essays and is delighted e-publishing has allowed her to publish them. Last year, she added a writing skills e-book to her list and hopes to soon add others based on the workshops she’s presented.
