USA Today bestselling author Lois Faye Dyer always knew she would be a writer someday, though the road to realizing her true calling had a few detours and rest stops along the way. Growing up in such picturesque spots as a working ranch in northeastern Montana, the turn-of-the-century coastal town of Mendocino, California, an 1800s home on the shores of Lake Okoboji in Iowa, and the Spanish-flavored city of San Buenaventura on the Pacific Ocean in Southern California provided Lois with a wealth of inspiration for the fictional tales she would write one day.
A successful career in the legal community was satisfying professionally, but her heart still longed to follow her dream of publication. After several years spent honing her craft, Lois sold her first contemporary romance in 1990 and retired from her day job shortly after to focus on her writing. Today, when not plotting her next bestseller, Lois enjoys walking her dog, seeing to the needs of her demanding cats, and spending time with her wonderful family.
