About this author

After more than three decades of working in corporate America, Florence Osmund retired to write novels. Her notable website is dedicated primarily to helping new authors—offering advice she wishes she had received before starting her first novel. Osmund's three novels have each won the BRAG Medallion, an honor awarded to less than 15% of books submitted. She earned her master’s degree from Lake Forest Graduate School of Management and currently resides in Chicago where she is working on her next novel.


As a holiday special, for the month of December I am bundling these three paperback books for $25 if ordered through my website: The Coach House, Daughters, and Red Clover.

They are signed, and the price includes shipping. Here's the link http://www.florenceosmund.com.

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy holiday season! Read more of this blog post »
