Eileen Dreyer has been inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame, nominated for the Anthony Award (for suspense) and is a retired trauma nurse. Also trained in forensic nursing and death investigation, Eileen doesn't see herself actively working in the field, unless this writing thing doesn't pan out.
An addicted traveler, Eileen has sung in the best Irish pubs in the world, and admits that research is the best way to salve her insatiable curiosity. Film producers, police detectives and Olympic athletes are some of her best sources and friends.
When Eileen isn't writing suspense, she's writing historical romance. Having completed the Drake's Rakes series, which follows a group of British aristocrats willing to sacrifice everything to keep their country safe, she's moved on to Last Chance Academy where the female graduates are crossing swords with Drake's Rakes.
Eileen resides in her native St. Louis with her husband, children, and large and noisy Irish family, of which she is the reluctant matriarch. Animals are also a big part of her life, but she refuses to subject them to the limelight.
