A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Virginia spent much of her childhood traveling with her parents as a “military brat,” living all over the US and in Japan. This influenced her love of travel and adventure, and research trips to England and Scotland are reflected in her work. Ms. Brown spent her formative years in Jackson, Mississippi and now lives in Southaven, Mississippi. As a long-time resident of the Magnolia State she finds the history, romance, beauty, and intrigue of the Deep South irresistible.

She also experienced a first for a romance author by appearing on the cover of Memphis, the magazine.

Ms. Brown’s award-winning mainstream Southern drama/mystery, Dark River Road, was released in October 2011.
