Gwen has been writing since the seventh grade and totally refuses to divulge how many years have passed since. After serving on the newspaper during high school, she took creative writing classes at Nassau Community College and had the privilege of studying the Art of the Essay under the incomparable June Jordan while at SUNY Stony Brook.
In her professional life, Gwen has worked in legal, medical, and scientific publishing, but is dedicated to fiction in her private life. She resides in the greater New York Metro area with three dogs, three cats, kids, husband, and two fancy mice. There used to be a lizard but one of the cats ate it. The mice are having better luck.
For straight-and-narrow art restorer Ardis Bellamy, a trip to the South of France to reclaim a historic blue diamond necklace should have been only mildly nervewracking. Understatement. In order to succeed, she's going to have to learn whom she can and can't trust, give the thugs who are chasing her the slip, and decide whether her growing relationship with sexy "recovery agent" James Tate is worth risking everything for -- or whether he's been double-crossing her all along.
