Short biography
J. R. Tomlin has close ties with Scotland since her father was a native Scot, and she spent substantial time in Edinburgh whilst growing up. Her historical novels are set in Scotland. You can trace her love of that nation to the stories of the Bruce and the Good Sir James her grandmother read her when she was small and to her hillwalking through the Cairngorms where the granite hills have a gorgeous red glow under the setting sun. Later, her writing was influenced by the work of authors such as Alexander Dumas, Victor Hugo and of J.R.R. Tolkien.
In addition to spending time in Scotland, she has traveled in the US, Europe and the Pacific Rim. She now lives in Oregon. [retrieved 8/24/2013 from Amazon.com]
