M. L. Gardner is the bestselling author of the 1929 series. When she’s not writing or spending time in the past, her passion is astrology and she enjoys working individually with clients to help them be the best version of themselves.
Gardner is frugal to a fault, preserving the old ways of living by canning, cooking from scratch, and woodworking. Nostalgic stories from her grandmother’s life during the Great Depression inspired Gardner to write the 1929 series—as well as her own research into the Roarin’ Twenties.
She has authored ten books, three novellas, one book of short stories and a cookbook. Gardner is married with three kids and four cats. She resides in western Montana.
