Violet Grayson was born in New England during the 1930’s. It was a time when women didn’t expect very much out of life. The path was clear – finish high school, take a job while you watched for the love of your life, get married, get pregnant, and leave the work force to become a stay at home mom. However, her life took a new direction almost immediately after marriage. In 1986, she wrote her first book out of four published so far and she’s still writing.
