Having spent her youth dallying in Coney Island, Gail painted scenes from this classic American vacation spot for an exhibition at the Lockwood Museum in 2016. She is a member of the Connecticut Chapter of the Romance Writers of America, and loves to hear from fans. Drop her a line, or follow her on social media.
Gail Ingis writes historical romantic suspense. Her latest book, The Unforgettable Miss Baldwin: The Gilded Age Heiresses published in 2019 and is available on Amazon and other retailers. Her previous book, Indigo Sky, was published in 2015 by Soul Mate Publishing and is available on Amazon.
Albert Bierstadt’s mega painting, The Domes of Yosemite inspired her writing. It is a painting that once hung in the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum, in Norwalk, Connecticut, where she serves as a trustee and curator of art.
Gail’s long career in interior design, architecture, and art was punctuated by her founding of a school of interior design, Interior Design Institute, now part of Berkeley College. Her professorship extended to colleges across NJ, CT and NY.
Prior to her debut as an author, she illustrated the book Seeking Paradise by Deborah Galiley, an Amazon publication.
Gail has memberships in several professional societies for interior design and art, and is a member of the Romance Writers of America. She resides in Connecticut with her scientist-writer husband, who is her Chief Editor.
