Found this in a funky antique store in Omaha!

Love of reading led Lucinda Stein headlong into a career as a librarian and eventually, as a fulltime author. She writes everything from young adult to adult books, short story to historical novels.

Her books have been finalists in the Colorado Book Awards, Oklahoma Book Awards, WILLA Literary Awards, and the High Plains Book Awards. Her short story, “Sulfur Springs,” won the 2011 LAURA Short Fiction Award judged by Pam Houston. Her stories have appeared in Pooled Ink, The South Dakota Review, Fine Lines, and Women Writing the West online.

When not writing, she enjoys reading (definitely a book nerd and bibliophile!), painting (lately, wild animal portraits), and hiking with her husband and her shelter-rescue dog, Opie. She loves to hear from readers!
