Born in New Mexico, the daughter of a US Air Force Lt. Colonel in the Strategic Air Command, the author's first published work at the age of nine was printed in the Spokesman-Review newspaper for payment of one dollar.

Wilkie Distinguished Student Award in Political Science. Earning a Masters in Public Affairs (1980) from the University of Washington, the author was selected to serve as a Presidential Management Fellow - a presitigious government executive program initiated under President Jimmy Carter.

After completing nearly a decade of government service on Capitol Hill and for the U.S. State Department in Washington DC, Ms. Burgess left government service to study creative writing. She attended writers workshops and seminars at the University of Washington, the University of California (Berkeley),the Creative Writing Program in Continuing Education at Stanford, the Maui Writers School, and the Aspen Writers Workshop to name a selected few.
