Gail Eastwood is today’s Featured Author for The Beau Monde Regency chapter of Romance Writers of America.
Gail Eastwood started writing stories at an early age, but spent almost twenty years as a journalist, theatre critic and PR consultant, among other jobs, before she finally wrote and sold her first novel, achieving her childhood dream.
That first book and six more Signet Regencies that followed won awards and recognition, including The Golden Leaf for Best Regency, 1994. Gail was nominated by Romantic Times Magazine for Career Achievement in the Regency category for two years in a row.
Gail’s love for the Regency period comes naturally from her love for England and for history, which she claims are “in the blood,” plus all the special qualities we admire and enjoy about this unique time.
Hailed by reviewers as “a master at painting pictures of Regency life,” Gail had earned a growing reputation as a writer who pushed the genre to new levels with emotional depth and original plots, until family health issues took her out of the field for ten years. Now she’s excited to be back, working on a new book along with the ebook reissues of her backlist.
She lives in RI in a “refilled nest” with her husband, two adult sons and one very lazy cat.
