Married with two grown sons, Connie Vines resides deep in the quirky suburbs of southern California. She has published over one hundred short stories and non-fiction articles, seven novels, and has ghost written two literary novels and one screenplay. The vice-president of GothRom (Gothic Chapter of Romance Writers), Connie participates in local literary events and judges national in international writing contests.
Connie developed an interest in the culinary arts during her childhood travels and exciting vacations (swamping and being chased by a gator!) during adulthood. Regional cooking and creating new stories filled with her recipes are what makes life quirky and deliciously fun!
