Award-winning author Lois Winston is not a doctor, nor does she play one on TV. Instead, she writes humorous, cross-genre contemporary novels, often drawing upon her extensive experience as a consumer crafts designer for much of her source material. Her first book, Talk Gertie to Me, a combination chick-lit/hen-lit/romantic comedy with a touch of the paranormal, was released in 2006. She follows that up in 2007 with Love, Lies, and a Double Shot of Deception, a mom-lit romantic suspense. When not writing or designing, Lois can be found trudging through stacks of manuscripts as she hunts for diamonds in the slush piles for the Ashley Grayson Literary Agency.
