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, THE COUNTRY GIRL EMPRESS, A LIFE IN THE SHADOW OF THE CROWN, and THE PERPETUAL TRAVELER to her ever-expanding collection of published writings. As an animal rights advocate, she fosters dogs and puppies and supports various animal rescue organizations. Her great affinity for animals and nature led her to write and publish the canine health book LIVING WITH CANINE EPILEPSY in November 2015 to help raise canine epilepsy awareness - a cause near and dear to her heart. 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.
