Meet Luisa Marietta Gold

Luisa Marietta Gold spent much of her adult life in Pennsylvania working for a large corporation. After her daughter was born, she relocated to North Carolina and began working as a Realtor while operating a recreational business with her husband. Her current home is near a lake reminiscent of the Rideau Lakes, which provided the setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge Series.

Among her interests are swimming, painting, cooking, baking, and of course, writing and storytelling. But it’s the simple things of life that bring the most enjoyment, like the beauty of the trees outside the window of her writing room as they change with the seasons, watching the sunrise and sunset, and being entertained by her kitties as they interact and play. Many of these interests and life experiences are woven into the pages of her books.
