Ella Quinn is actually two people. There is the writer, me and my great-great-grandmother.
I live in Saint Thomas, Virgin Islands. I’ve completed two Regency romances, re-writing a third and writing a forth. I have a husband, a grown son, a granddaughter named Josephine, that I don’t get to see nearly enough, one Great Dane, one Chartreux cat and an island stray.
Before I began writing, I like gardening, reading, walking and traveling, but I love writing.
The other Ella Quinn was born in County Longford, Ireland in 1850. As a young woman she immigrated to the United States and made her home in Philadelphia. She owned her own business as a wig maker and is listed in the 1890 Philadelphia Directory. Ella married and had two children. She continued to run her business and kept her maiden name until her husband died in 1899. I’ve only found one census record of her. But I’ve found several ships’ manifests. She sailed from Philadelphia to France at least once a year until WWI was already underway. To me she was truly an amazing woman.
