ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

Lois Mathieu is a full-time fiction writer in Connecticut. She holds a B.A. degree from Syracuse University in New York and a Masters of English from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.

Mathieu’s interest in writing¬†began with poetry during her undergraduate years. Her¬†early poems and poetry reviews are published in fine literary journals. She is an honored first prize recipient of the Joseph E. Brodine Award presented to her by The Connecticut Poetry Society.

Fiction, she believes,¬†is the art form that allows her to¬†use¬†insights¬†and¬†creative imagination and put characters¬†on stage¬†and into their own¬†spotlight. Mathieu’s novels are serious,¬†hopeful, and punctuated with humor. She enjoys¬†playing on¬†the¬†wide field¬†where¬†life tests her characters to deal with what they have and what they have lost. The intrigue of their journey is based on their struggle for reconciliation.
