Icy Snow Blackstone was born in 1802, in northern Georgia where her father, the Reverend John Blackstone, was prominent in local politics. Two hundred and five years later, her great-great-great-great-granddaughter began using her name as a pseudonym for her romance novels.
The present Icy Snow Blackstone lives far from her Southern roots in Lancaster County, Nebraska, where she continues to write romances generally set in the South. Her seventh novel will be released in April, 2013, by Class Act Books.
Icy Snow shares a website with her alter ego Toni V. Sweeney at http://www.tonivsweeney.com/
