I love doing my blog. I have invited some of my fellow historic SMP writers
for interviews. The response to my invite was encouraging. I also invite my
Connecticut Chapter of Romance Writer’s (CTRWA) of America writers. Without my
CTRWA group, I wouldn’t even be here. They are amazing. One of our writers won
the Rita Award this year. We have quite a chapter in Connecticut.
Tennis . . . a huge part of my alternative professional life. If you love a
sport, you know how addicting it can be. Hours, hours, and hours on the tennis
court practicing, teaching, playing competitively and socially. My blog today
gives you a peek into tennis history from the 12th century to now. Following the
life of a tennis player can be . . . electrifying. How do you cover all this in
one bitty blog? You don’t, but hmm, maybe my next historic romance? Please . .
. Stop by and let me know your thoughts.
Gail Ingis writes historical romance, loves history and romance of course, has
taught history, and her weekly blog frequently covers historical content. A
native of Brooklyn, New York, Ingis’s early days began and ended with writing,
drawing and music. Her inspiration to write came from books gifted to her by an
aunt. But life had other ideas.
After graduating from the New York School of Interior Design with a BFA in
Interior Architecture and Design and masters’ studies in Architecture and
Design Criticism at The New School (Parsons). Her career in interior design and
architecture led her to the other arts. Ingis founded the Interior Design
Institute, a school of interior design, that she eventually sold, but during
her tenure, she was twice asked by publishers to write a textbook, her efforts
were thwarted by a heavy schedule.
Ingis resides in Connecticut with her scientist-writer husband. She and her
husband travel and enjoy tennis. Currently, she sits on the Lockwood-Mathews
Mansion Museum Board of Trustees and serves as Curator of Art for exhibitions
at the museum.
