Florence Weinberg was born in the high desert country, in Alamogordo, New Mexico, Florence loved exploring the wilderness on foot and horseback. Those grandiose landscapes formed her sensibility. She traveled extensively with her military family during World War II and later worked and traveled in Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal. After earning her PhD, she taught for four years at the University of Rochester, twenty-two years at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY, and for ten at Trinity University in San Antonio. She published four scholarly books, many articles and book reviews.
When, after retiring in 1999, she was freed from academia to devote herself to writing fiction, she produced ten novels, ranging from fantasy to historical romance and mystery. Nine are in print: three historical novels, a romance, four mysteries and a fantasy. A tenth novel in progress, examines the Battle of the Alamo from a Tejano point of view. Still another novel lies in a drawer, awaiting editing.
Her favorite animals are horses-a love affair over many years—and cats, her constant companions. She enjoys music, traveling, hiking, biking, gardening, swimming, and most of all, the conversation of great-souled friends.
