About Florence Osmund

After working in corporate America for thirty years, I retired to write novels. My first one was published in 2012, and I have been able to publish one per year since then. I like to craft stories that contain thought-provoking plots, and characters with depth and complexity--particularly ones that challenge readers to survey their own values.

I live in the great city of Chicago where I continue to write.
