I'm a writer and high school history teacher who has been obsessed with infamous women from history since I was twelve.
My third and fourth books center around the women who stood behind the greatest conquerors the world has ever seen. The Tiger Queens is the story of Genghis Khan's wife and daughters, while The Conqueror's Wife tells of the women who both loved and hated Alexander the Great.
I recently joined the H Team to write a collaborative novel, Song of War: A Novel of Troy in which I reimagine the story of Cassandra, King Priam's cursed seer of a daughter.
I live with my husband and daughter in Alaska, where I'm at work on my next novel about history's forgotten women.
