Lucinda Whitney was born in Lisbon, Portugal, and raised in Braga, Portugal. She has been in the U.S.A.  for over twenty-five 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 clean & wholesome romance with Happily Ever Afters.

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.
