Lois Greiman was born on a cattle ranch in central North Dakota where she learned to ride and spit with the best of them. After graduating from high school, she moved to Minnesota to train and show Arabian horses. But eventually she fell in love, became an aerobics instructor, and gave birth to three of her best friends.
She sold her first novel to Avon Books in 1992, and has published more than twenty titles since then, including romantic comedy, historical romance, children’s stories, and her fun-loving Christina McMullen mysteries. She has won such prestigious honors as Romantic Times' Storyteller of the Year, Midwest Fiction Writers Rising Star Award, Romantic Times' Love and Laughter Award, the Toby Bromberg Award for Most Humorous Mystery, and the LaVyrle Spencer Award. Her heroes have received K.I.S.S. recognition numerous times and her books have been seen regularly among the industry's Top Picks!
Currently, she lives on the Minnesota tundra with her family, some of whom are human.
Hobbies, Interests, and Enthusiasms
Like every other author on the planet, I love to read. But my first passion is all things equine. I was raised on a ranch and never got over it. We have 10-20 horses which we ride in endurance races and show, English and western. I also enjoy almost anything outdoors: hiking, biking, running (okay, not so much with the running; I did one marathon and I think that may be enough to last the rest of my life), kayaking, and camping. I have a thing for nature and animals.
