A self proclaimed Angels baseball fan, Royal has never let the general public know exactly how old she is.
At the age of eight, she decided that she wanted to become a writer. She won a writing contest where she had to write about her mother before taking that decision at such a relatively young age.
Royal began buying books about history, and she became fascinated with that topic as she turned into a teenager. Among the writers she preferred was Ira Levin.
When Royal was fourteen, she took a book from her uncle's collection: the book, "Forever Amber", would make a difference in Royal's life, as she became a fan of restoration era romances.
At the age of eighteen, she attended the University of California, Irvine, later on transferring to UCLA. Royal was able to get a hands-on experience on professional writing there, as she majored in television and film production. Always an admirer of art, Royal then opened a jewelry store at a local mall.
For the next fourteen years, she was a dedicated businesswoman, helping her store expand into a chain of five local stores. She got married and had three children. However, as company owner, she had to spend many hours reading and writing, which gave her a way to practice her writing skills. She would occasionally write her opinion on store matters so that employees could read them.
Her small chain of stores was bought over by a larger, national chain, and Royal thought about complete retirement. She used her newly found free time, however, to complete her childhood dreams of becoming a writer: In between watching her children and performing house chores, she was able to finish her first story, "Amethyst".
"Amethyst" was followed by "Emerald", "Amber", "In Praise of Younger Men", "Violet". "Lily", "Rose" and "Lost in Temptation".
Royal has begun touring the United States, joining the autograph signing circuit as a way to promote her books.
