Winnie Griggs is a small town girl born and raised in Southeast Louisiana’s Cajun Country who grew up to marry a country boy from the piney hills of Northwest Louisiana. Though her Prince Charming (who often wears the guise of a cattle rancher) is more comfortable riding a tractor than a white steed, the two of them have been living out their own happily-ever-after for 30+ years. During that time they raised four proud-to-call-them-mine children and a too-numerous-to-count assortment of dogs, cats, fish, hamsters, turtles and 4-H sheep.
Winnie has a BS degree in mathematics and held a job in the electric utility industry for more years than she cares to contemplate. But her first love has always been books – both reading and writing them. An avid reader all her life, she turned her hand to novel writing in the early nineties and made her first sale in 2000. Now happily retired from her day job, she spends her time trying to give life to those intriguing characters who people her imagination and clamor to have their stories told.
Her favorite activities, outside of writing and reading, are cooking, exploring flea markets and pretending the growing army of dust bunnies who have invaded her home will disappear if she just ignores them long enough.
