Hi! I am an upstate New Yorker now living in Chicago. I LOVE books– especially historic novels–and anything having to do with them: reading them, writing them, discussing them, you name it.
Here is my “official” bio:
Allison Pataki is the author of the New York Times bestselling THE TRAITOR’S WIFE and the upcoming THE ACCIDENTAL EMPRESS.
She graduated Cum Laude from Yale University with a major in English and spent several years writing for TV and online news outlets.
The daughter of former New York State Governor George E. Pataki, Allison is currently working on her second novel, The Accidental Empress, to be published by Simon & Schuster in February 2015.
A lover of history, Allison was inspired to write The Accidental Empress by her family’s deep roots in the former Habsburg empire of Austria-Hungary. Allison is the co-founder of the nonprofit organization, ReConnect Hungary. She is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post and FoxNews.com
