LUCINDA BRANT is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of award-winning Georgian historical romances & mysteries. Her novels are described as smart, witty, adventures, full of heart wrenching drama with a happily ever after, and where history is more than a setting. Lucinda has degrees in History, Political Science, and Law from the Australian National University and a post-graduate diploma in Education. Before becoming a full-time writer, Lucinda taught History and Geography at an exclusive boarding school for young ladies. She has been researching and reading about the 18th Century for forty years, and still finds the Georgian era just as fascinating now as then. Lucinda lives in the middle of a koala reserve so the neighbors are cute and cuddly and sleep all day. She drinks way too much coffee and is addicted to Pinterest.
