Jerilyn Ring was born and raised in San Francisco and later relocated to Sacramento. She has six grown children and lives with her husband and two dogs in Loomis, California. She enjoyed a career in nursing working in different specialties but found that hospice, mental health, and chemical dependency were the most rewarding.
While she enjoyed a career in nursing, writing has always been her primary passion while reading is her past time. Like any pursuit, she believes writing is one-part talent and nine parts application, applying oneself to the study of structure, the novel’s blueprint and craft, the elements of fiction. She’s currently working on her second novel and has recently published her first, Bridget. Her genre is upmarket fiction.
