Wil A. Emerson


Wil lives in West Michigan but has called many exciting cities her home. Dallas and Medford, New Jersey were particular favorites. A few years were spent in Europe, ein vunderbar ziet! Besides the writing life, her favorite past times are travel/beaches/tennis and golf. Throw in a good cook book and you'll get a gourmet meal. In less leisure days, as a registered nurse with a B.S., Wil served as a renal specialist and transplant coordinator for a major university medical setting. Between assignments, journeys out of the country and family duties, she wrote her first novel which included an enduring patient who left a strong impression. Her characters are still drawn from those important and interesting days in the medical/nursing setting. Mysteries and women's fiction with complex characters are her specialities...a new story is always in the making. Short or long...plot, pace and tension make for an interesting read.
