Stephanie Grace Whitson is a full time novelist/lecturer, an incurable quilt enthusiast, a student working on her Master’s degree in history, a grandmother, and a biker who enjoys motorcycle trips with her blended family and church friends.
She began quilting in earnest as a young mother. Soon thereafter, she co-founded Mulberry Lane, a quilt pattern design company that also marketed sewing-related pewter to jewelry shops. She has been an antique quilt and sewing tools dealer, has taken several quilt appraisal/textile dating classes, and volunteers at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum.
Offered a publishing contract for her first historical novel in 1994, Stephanie has published sixteen historical novels, three contemporary novels, two works of non-fiction, and recently signed a contract for a series of quilt-related historical novels. She is a frequent lecturer/guest speaker/workshop leader for various church and civic organizations including quilt guilds.
