Gloria Wiederhold is a native New Yorker raised in the Throgs Neck section of the Bronx . Her favorite haunts are Pelham Bay Park, especially when transformed into a winter wonderland. She also loves the serene beauty of the New York Botanical Gardens, a joy to behold in her favorite season, autumn. She feels fortunate to be amidst the wealth of museums and entertainment the city has to offer. Gloria can travel far and wide, transcend the portals of time once her imagination is sparked, but point to anywhere on a map and she'll be quick to tell you "I always wanted to go there!"
Gloria was a child with a vivid imagination, perfectly content to spend hours drawing and scribbling away while others played outside. When it came to indoor play, she was the master storyteller able to convince her peers faeries were real, bring a tear to the eye with a sorrowful tale, or cause her cousins to bolt out of a room screaming at one of her ghost stories.
It seemed natural that she would pursue the arts. She attended the High School of Art and Design and then moved on to earn a BFA from the School of Visual Arts . She was employed as a photo researcher with The Image Bank for over a decade where she became impassioned with the power of photography to tell a story.
She later took on the roles of employee, wife, mother and graduate student. In May 2003 hard work and perseverance earned her an MSED in Early Childhood Education leading to a career transition as a preschool teacher. Now Gloria spends every spare moment engrossed in her true passion, writing historical romances set during the medieval era. She is an avid Anglophile, especially drawn to the era of the War of the Roses with a particular interest in the life of Richard III. Her writing is heavily influenced by Arthurian Legend, Celtic mythology, heroic Nordic epics and the paranormal. One her many favorite sayings is "Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there."
Authors who have inspired and impacted her writing style are J.R.R. Tolkien, Sharon K. Penman, Anne Easter Smith, Catherine Cookson and Alexander Caine Duncan to name a few.
