Lois Faye Dyer always knew she would be a writer someday. When her big sister read aloud from Rudyard Kipling, Albert Payson Terhune or Mary O'Hara, five-year-old Lois would plan her own stories about a mongoose named Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a dog named Lad and horses with names such as Flicka and Thunderhead.
A lifelong bookaholic, she wrote her first western novel when she was fourteen, but since she had no clue about romance, the book was only a hundred pages long.
She persevered, however, and sold her first contemporary romance in 1990. In the years between five years old and 1990, Lois lived in various places: a wheat-and-cattle ranch in northeastern Montana, an 1800's home on the shores of Lake Okoboji in Iowa, in the picturesque turn-of-the-century coastal town of Mendocino in Northern California, and the Spanish-flavored city of San Buenaventura on the Pacific Ocean in Southern California.
After working in the legal community, she now spends her days doing what she loves most — writing novels. She lives with two demanding and lovable cats, Chloe and Evie, in a small town on the shore of beautiful Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest. Catching the ferry to visit her daughter and two granddaughters in Seattle is a favorite pastime, as is taking long walks with her son and his yellow Labrador, Anna.
