Edith  Layton

Edith Layton enjoyed writing. When she began writing books, she freelanced as a publicity writer and wrote articles and opinion pieces for the New York Times and Newsday, as well as smaller media. Publishers Weekly dubbed her one of the most gifted romance authors. She garnered numerous honors, including the Romantic Times' Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as glowing reviews and accolades from Library Journal, Romance Readers Anonymous, and Romance Writers of America. Mother of three grown children, she lived on Long Island with her beloved dog, Miss Daisy; her partly wild parakeet, Little Richard; and several nameless pond fish in the fishness protection program.
