On the off chance that you care (hey, you will once she becomes a New York Times bestselling author), Ginger Rand is the nom de plume of an ex-journalist and longtime nonfiction writer (mostly in the fields of food and nutrition) who decided to mark her post-midlife crisis by writing fiction. She’s using a pseudonym because her real name lacks sex appeal and nobody can pronounce it anyway.
An avid reader of romance novels, both contemporary and historical, she decided to dip her toes into that genre first. Rand has not yet published any fiction, but expects that to change anytime now. Her first contemporary romance includes a lot of food, for obvious reasons.
She bakes brownies and lemon bars to die for, and her husband married her because she can make lasagna from scratch. (He definitely did not marry her for her housekeeping skills.) Rand lives in the Chicago area with her husband and two large, lovable dogs of indeterminate lineage.
