About the author

Gail Ingis is the author of historical romance. As a historian, Ingis vividly describes the historic scenes within the period of her writing.

Her goals in life are simple—to remember to indulge her twelve grandchildren, and their parents, her impossibly amazing and terrific hubby and partner, and to keep writing books for as long as she possibly can, and spend lots of time in Coney Island, on the tennis courts and ballroom dancing.

Gail Ingis never thought about writing a book. She’s an artist. It wasn’t until 2009, inspired by Albert Bierstadt’s painting, Domes of Yosemite that once hung in Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum. She wrote Indigo Sky loosely based on the artist’s life. After studying fiction, her romance book was published by Soul Mate Publishing in 2015. Story done so was she until the bug bit her again and now she’s about to self publish her new book, Gilded Age Heiresses: The Unforgettable Miss Baldwin. The launch date is Tuesday, September 10, 2019. She writes historical romance, loves history, and gets caught up in the past. “It’s fun and fascinating.”

A native of Brooklyn, New York, Ingis graduated NYSID with a BFA in Interior Architecture and Design and her master's studies in Architecture and Design Criticism at Parsons New School. She worked in the field and founded a school of Interior Design in 1981, collected national accreditation, then sold the school ten years later. She resides in Connecticut with her retired scientist husband. Currently, she sits on Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum Board of Trustees and serves as the curator of art exhibitions.

Before her debut as an author, she illustrated a book for Deborah Galiley, "Seeking Paradise" on Amazon. As a professional artist, her paintings are extensions of her design illustration work. Gail spent her youth dallying in Coney Island that inspired her paintings of the island. She is a professional member of American Society of Interior Designers (ASID, and member of the Connecticut Chapter of Romance Writers of America. (RWA)
