About Abigail Dane



is an incurably-curious life-long learner with a low boredom threshold—which explains her five university degrees and three professional careers. Born in the Missouri Ozarks, she lived in Missouri for most of her life.  She and her husband now live in the majestic Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, surrounded by the mountains, forests and history she loves so much.

These days, Abigail devotes herself to writing, training, art and other creative pursuits. A long-time habit of reading five or six books a week and a fascination with history and genealogy have fueled the desire to write historical romance novels, making this her fourth–but probably not her last–career.




Philosophy:  Better to wear out than rust out.

Personal motto: If it ain’t broke, break it.
