ANITA FOSTER LOVELY (B.S. Business Education, M.A. Economics) grew up in South Jersey, taught college, served in elected office on her Town's Council, and later moved to Atlanta, Georgia. There she enjoyed a career as an Economist and as a University Administrator before retiring early to pursue her hobby of writing. She is the author of the highly-praised romantic suspense novel, DECEPTIONS, and also of BETRAYALS, another contemporary romantic suspense novel that is woven with a runaway slave saga. BETRAYALS caught the attention of the OPRAH SHOW and other major media outlets, and DECEPTIONS was reviewed and critiqued while she attended the YALE WRITERS' WORKSHOP. She co-authored two studies with three professors from the University of Georgia, and the results are published in the Journal of Research in Pharmaceutical Economics. She received an award from BET/Arabesque books. Anita is also acknowledged for editing assistance in the Chicken Soup for the African American Soul. Besides founding and facilitating Writing Critique Groups and presenting at Writing Workshops and Conferences, Anita enjoys pickleball, reading, and learning about various cultures. She still lives in Atlanta with her husband, not far from her grown children.
