About me

Joyce D’Auria, nee Milne, was born and brought up in Coatbridge, Scotland. She has worked as a registered nurse, licensed counsellor and Reiki practitioner. As an author she fondly remembers her grandparents’ stories, told in their rich Scottish dialect and these, along with her own extensive travel and research, these helped breathe life into the nineteenth-century world she travels in her books MY BLOOD IS ROYAL and soon to be published in summer 2013 BILLY BOY. More about the author and her books can be found on her website:
She lives on the west coast of Florida on a quiet bayou with her husband, Paul and two cats and enjoys visits from her daughter, Linda, a gifted editor, and other Scottish relatives who live stateside.
