Lavinia Kent never knew that most people donâ€™t make up stories in their heads to pass the time. She still has a hard time understanding how those who donâ€™t survive the doctorâ€™s waiting room or a grocery store line without another world to escape into.
Growing up in New York state and Wisconsin, Lavinia graduated from Wellesley College and, for reasons that are still not quite clear, also holds an MBA from Washington, D.C.â€™s Georgetown University. Lavinia has remained in Washington ever since.
She lives under the gracious (and usually benign) rule of Erzsebet, the cat, along with her husband, three children, one cockatiel, two rats, and Erzsebetâ€™s younger, subordinate tomcat, otherwise known as The Golden Snitch.
As the mother of three, Lavinia finds â€śleisure timeâ€ť to be ever-elusive, but when she is not reading romance novels, she watches far too much HBO and reality television. It must also be noted that she has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things Buffy.
Lavinia is a two-term president of the Washington Romance Writers and is proud to be a four-time Romance Writers of America Golden Heart nominee.
