Bill Haggart has been an educator for forty years. He has been a high school teacher and college instructor, educational trainer and consultant. He ran his own consultant and training company, Insights & Innovations for twenty years until his retirement.

The creator of the Kaleidoscope Profiles, a learning styles inventory, he has used it to do writing workshops on The Power of the Senses. He is also the author of several historical and educational books and articles.

A history major in college, he loves all history, particularly the Napoleonic war period and the society of the Regency. He began reading historical romances and traditional Regencies decades ago, and finally decided to write them, after being encouraged [dared] by Joy, his partner and heroine for the last forty-four years.

He has been a member of RWA for fifteen years, as well as a terrific local group, the Sacramento Valley Rose. A member of the Beau Monde for almost as long, Bill has placed in numerous writing contests during that time. He has yet to be published. Just too busy, but with retirement, the search is on.

Bill has two terrific sons, Sean and Cory: Sean is an aero-space engineer on the team that designed NASA’s Curiosity, the Mars Rovers. Cory runs his own marketing company from Ottawa, Canada, Crafted Stories and is the family’s premier word smith. They both are models for my heroes. The real homeowners, two cats, Beau and Mikey, keep me from working too hard by sleeping on the keyboard.

He has been voted “Favorite Workshop Presenter” three different times.
