Cygnet Brown is a pseudomym. The author chose Cygnet because her maiden name is "Swanson" (a cygnet is a baby swan) and Brown is her married name. She grew up in Northwestern Pennsylvania and began writing stories in Mrs. Watson’s seventh grade English class. From that time on she wanted to become a professional writer, but life got in the way. After graduating high school, she served on active Navy from 1981-1987 as a Neuro-psychiatric Technician then in the reserves until 1999. She married, became a mother to three children, step mother to another, and became a nurse. She resumed writing in October 2008 when she fell in love with her characters all over again. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts from Argosy University in 2014.

Cygnet Brown currently lives in the Missouri Ozarks. She loves to write and research history. She never knows when she'll uncover a historical tidbit that sparks another story in The Locket Saga. Titles in the Locket Saga include: When God Turned His Head (the first book in the series), Soldiers Don’t Cry, the Locket Saga Continues, Book III of The Locket Saga, A Coward's Solace, Book IV: Sailing under the Black Flag, Book VL In the Shadow of the Mill Pond, and most recently, Book VI: The Anvil. In 2013 she published her first nonfiction book Simply Vegetable Gardening based on her 40 years of gardening experience. She also wrote two short booklets Help from Kelp and Using Diatomaceous Earth Around the House and Yard. This year, she is preparing to publish Book IV In The Locket Saga: Sailing Under the Black Flag.

She is the owner of Jerjoboch Publications, formerly Cygnet of the Ozarks Publishing, a business she founded in 2013. She has written for Mother Earth News magazine and online article sites She is the author of a Christian blog called How My Spirit Sings.
