About me

I am a writer of historical fiction set in sixteenth century France. An avid reader who fell in love with all things French at the age of twelve, I went on to earn a Ph.D in French literature. After years of studying the craft of fiction, I decided to write a novel of my own. My stories grow from my research and my desire to make Renaissance Europe come alive for modern readers. I share my enthusiasm for this fascinating era at my blog, Writing the Renaissance.

Please feel free to contact me by Twitter, Facebook, or at my website, where I often review works of historical fiction set in other eras.
