About the Book
Claudette Lewis Bard, a life-long Marylander, is a fan of romance and historical fiction novels. She got the writing bug in her first year of college while taking a remedial English 101 class. The teacher had her rewrite an assignment several times until she was able to translate her thoughts, dig deep and put them into words on paper. She has written several short stories, a successful grant, an article for a community newspaper and a non-fiction narrative chronicling the lives of several elderly relatives. Negro Island Light is her first published novel. Claudette Lewis Bard lives in the Baltimore area with her husband, Ed, and their dog Roxi.
