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,

Ten years ago, Gail and Art built their own Lumby - a 40 acre gentleman's farm in rural upstate New York, which has been featured in several national
magazines and newspapers, as well as on PBS. They will soon be moving to Florida as both are avid open-water and pool long-distance swimmers.
