Avis A. Townsend has lived in western New York all her life. A 16-year employee of the Wilson Board of Education and a former newspaper editor, she now writes full-time.

Active in area historical societies and circles, she has penned four books in the Images of America series, as well as novels and an anthology.

Her appreciation and love for the region and its history comes through clearly in her works. All of her novels take place in the Lake Ontario region, and her first novel includes a school modeled after Wilson Central.
