After some 15 years in academia (undergrad, grad and then faculty) I started writing full time in 2000. I have three publishing personas: the Rosina Lippi who wrote Homestead, Tied to the Tracks, and The Pajama Girls of Lambert Square; Rosina Lippi-Green who has a lot of academic publications to her credit; and probably best known, Sara Donati. Sara is responsible for what is generally referred to as The Wilderness Novels, a six volume series of historicals set on the New-York frontier between 1792 and 1824.

While historical fiction is my first and abiding love, I also really like writing contemporary novels, though they don’t fit into any particular genre and thereby stump the marketing and advertising people. Laura Vivanco of Teach Me Tonight has called my two most recent novels contemporary romantic emotional-mystery fiction. Rosina-the-former-academic likes all the syllables. The other Rosina bristles at the need for genre labels.

I was born and raised in Chicago and have now settled down with the Mathematician in the Pacific Northwest, on a hillside between the San Juan Islands and the Cascade Mountains. We are recent empty-nesters, still trying to adjust.
