Virginia White was born and raised in the State of Virginia and has lived in California, Montana, Ohio, Tennessee, Washington D.C., New York City, Tokyo, Japan and The Philippine Islands. She now lives in Budapest and New York. 
     Her professional life has been as varied as her places of abode. She was a science administrator at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee and The Salk Institute in La Jolla, California, and was the first Associate Director of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars when it was established at the Smithsonian Institution in 1969. At the City University Graduate Center in New York in the 1970's she directed the activities of the Office of Sponsored Research, and wrote her first book, GRANTS: How to Find Out About Them and What To Do Next. She then turned to full time writing and working in television, films, and theatre. In the 1980s she was with the New Jersey Shakespeare Festival for two seasons and in the Broadway company of Samuel Beckett's “Rockaby” [and] with the company [went] to the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles for a brief run.
     In 1992, she joined the United States Peace Corps and went to Hungary where she taught English in a gymnasium (high school) near Budapest, and set about learning some Hungarian history, language and culture. She claims to feel almost as much at home in Hungary as in the United States.
