Gail Ingis, ASID*
Gail Ingis writes historical romance, loves history and romance, of course. Her weekly blog frequently covers historical content. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Gail’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 with master’s studies in Architecture and Design Criticism at The New School (Parsons), she worked in interior design and architecture, and founded a school of Interior Design. Twice asked by publishers to write a textbook, her efforts were thwarted by a heavy schedule.
She resides in Connecticut with her scientist-writer husband. She and her husband love to travel and have been swept up into ballroom dancing, a recent commitment. Currently, she sits on Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum Board of Trustees, and serves as the curator of art exhibitions.
Prior to her debut as an author, she illustrated a book for Deborah Galiley, "Seeking Paradise" that can be found on Amazon. As a professional artist, her paintings are an extension of her illustration work in design. Gail spent her youth dallying in Coney Island that inspired her latest painting project for her 2016 show in the museum.
She is a member of the Connecticut Chapter of Romance Writer’s of America.
