Lucinda Whitney was born in Lisbon, Portugal, and raised in Braga, Portugal. She has been in the U.S.A. for almost twenty years. She lives west of Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband and four children (and four cats). Lucinda is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which she joined when I was eighteen years old.
She writes in the genre of LDS contemporary romance. This means that some of her characters are also LDS (or Mormon), even though she doesn’t make religion the main focus of any story— it’s just part of their everyday lives. Romance and Happily Ever Afters are what Lucinda likes to write about.
Lucinda received a Master’s Degree from the University of Minho in Braga, Portugal, in Portuguese/English Teaching. She taught 7th grade for one school year and then served a mission for the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for eighteen months at Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah. Since then, she’s done a little of everything, including being a stamping/scrapbooking demonstrator for almost five years, and a newborn/child photographer for four years. Most of the photos you will see on this blogsite were taken by her. After receiving an educator license, she now works part-time as a substitute teacher. She also enjoys knitting in the winter and keeps an herb garden in the summer.
She’s the co-president of the Tooele chapter of the League of Utah Writers.
