A. Piper Burgi has pursued a variety of diverse careers. After honorably completing her tour of duty in the Air Force, and a short stint as an Air Force contractor, she began her journey as a military spouse, moving with her pilot husband from coast to coast. She is the author of five non-fiction books and recently added the historical fiction novels IN THE SHADOW OF HER MAJESTY and THE COUNTRY GIRL EMPRESS to her ever-expanding collection of published writings.
A lifelong student and lover of history, Mrs. Burgi was always and still is fascinated with historical events. She grew up with stories about the most beautiful and fascinating Empress Elisabeth of Austria, and remembers all too well, the first time she heard of the English King Henry VIII and his six wives in high school. In 2011, after she picked up a few books about the iconic Henry and his many wives on a whim, she was hooked once again. This simple step reignited her love of history, and she has not stopped learning ever since.
When she is not busy chasing after her three dogs or holding on tightly to a good cup of coffee, she can be found typing away on her computer.
