Dr. Beulah S. Coyne, known as B, is the sixth of nine children. She grew up as a farm girl in the rural South. B worked ten years in the mortgage and paper industries before entering university. She paid her own way through school aided by student loans. Upon graduation, B began a long HR career in the oil and aluminum industries and was the first female employed in labor relations at Shell Oil's Norco plant in Louisiana.
B has lived in Jamaica, Ireland, and traveled extensively in Europe and Australia. During the annual spring-cleaning of the farmhouse, when B was in high school, her mother accidentally threw away her first hand written novel. Many years later, after earning an MBA in Jamaica, a Ph.D. in England, and working in academia, B has finally returned to the career she loves: writing historical fiction.
