After a long career working in corporate America, Florence Osmund retired to write novels.
"I strive to craft stories that contain thought-provoking plots, and characters with depth and complexity--particularly ones that challenge readers to survey their own values," Osmund states.

Osmund currently resides in downtown Chicago where she is working on her next novel.
