About Gail Fraser:
Gail is the author of The Lumby series, which includes The Lumby Lines, Stealing Lumby, Lumby's Bounty, The Promise of Lumby, Lumby on the Air, (all originally published by Penguin Random House), and Lost in Lumby. Additionally, she and her late husband, artist Art Poulin, collaboratively wrote and illustrated Finding Happiness in Simplicity, hardcover Globe Pequot Press.
Gail was born and raised in Rye, New York. She studied at the University of London before returning to Skidmore College where she earned her BA in English Education. She completed her MBA at the University of Connecticut, with graduate work done at Harvard University. Prior to changing her life and becoming a novelist, Gail had a successful career in 'corporate America' holding senior executive and upper management positions in several Fortune 500 and start-up corporations, while working and living extensively throughout the world.
After being married for twenty years, her husband, folk artist Art Poulin, unexpectedly passed away in 2018. During the transition that followed, Gail continued her own graphic design work and launched the AMPoulin brand which, through remastering, further extends Art's legacy. Most recently, her WeeyBeey portfolio of whimsical images was rolled out for international licensing. Concurrently, Gail returned to her roots in pottery and has opened a professional studio in Colorado, where she lives. Gail continues her passions of long-distance swimming, golf, and writing (a new series is in the making), and is an active member in Mensa. In her off-hours, she manages her company, Lazygoose USA, and its foundation that canopies the collective artistic assets she and Art created over the years.
