Gayle Trent is a hybrid author. That means she's half author, half mom, half entrepreneur—okay, not true … plus, she doesn't have that many halves. It means she's both traditionally and self-published. Her cozy mystery series are written under the names Gayle Trent, Amanda Lee, and Gayle Leeson. She has has stand-alones written under Gayle Trent and G. V. Trent.
She lives in Virginia with her family: husband, two children—who are, incidentally, boy/girl twins, two feral cats, one indoor/outdoor cat, and a Great Pyrenees named Cooper who tries to shepherd them all. When not writing or reading, she can be found binge watching shows on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
