Lorraine Heath is the daughter of a British beauty (her mother actually won second place in a beauty contest sponsored by Max Factor during which she received a kiss from Caesar Romero) and a Texan who was stationed at Bovingdon while serving in the air force. Lorraine was born in Watford, Hertfordshire, England, but soon after moved to Texas. Her “dual” nationality has given her a love for all things British and Texan. She enjoys weaving both heritages through her stories. She is a USA TODAY bestselling author and a RITA award-winner.
