I. Beacham grew up in the heart of England—a green and pleasant land, mainly because it rains so much. In search of dry places, she joined the Royal Navy and spent the next thirty-four years with a full-on successful career that took her all over the world. Now retired, she writes romance dramas and has been lucky enough that several of her books have been GCLS and RRW award finalists. Still addicted to traveling, she spends her downtime ticking countries and places off her bucket list with abandon. She loves walking and loathes cooking.
