Story
Introduction
Born and raised in West Hartford, Connecticut,  I was known then, as Gloria Louise Paulsen. Later I attended Simmons College in Brookline, Massachusetts. At twenty one I married Robert S. Boyd, a Harvard man, who gradually worked his way up to becoming a high-powered Washington correspondent, and I became Gloria Boyd.
While raised our four fantastic children, Peter, Susan, Andy, and Tim, I began my writing career by writing short stories, and having pieces appear in magazines and the local newspaper in Maryland.
Bob and I waited until our four children were out of college before we obtained a congenial divorced. That was when I moved to Cambria, California. I continued writing while running two businesses, the Cambria Coast Gallery, on Moonstone Beach Drive, and Classy Rags, a boutique featuring the Ann Original hand-painted jackets, as well as other artists original work.
I now live in a cozy little house in Ashland, Oregon, and devote a major part of my time to writing. My first book, "Sincerely Louise," started as a short story in Molly Tinsley's writing class at the Southern Oregon University here in Ashland. Eventually the story became a fictionalized biography of my mother's life before I was born, and has recently been published. I could hardly believe it when I see it on Amazon.com. Currently I am editing a novel called, "Runaway Mama."
By reaching out on the Internet, I hope to re-connect with old friends, and also make new ones along the way.
So please, talk to me. After all, aren't friendships a major part of what makes our lives worth living? That, and owning a feisty little cat named, Charlie. And I hope the real Charlie, who once taught me how to make a Quesadilla, is reading this.
