I am the author of the Josephine B. Trilogy, internationally best-selling novels about Napoleon’s wife, now published in seventeen countries.
My most recent novel, Mistress of the Sun, also published internationally, is set in mid-17th century France at the court of the Sun King.
In the spring of 2012, I will be publishing another novel set in this court, and, after that, I will be writing a Young Adult novel (or two) about Josephine’s daughter Hortense.
I am a wife, mother of two adults, grandmother (yay!).
My husband and I live half the year in rural Ontario, Canada, and the other half in urban (well, it’s a village) San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico.
In reality, however, I’m either in 17th-18th century France or on the Net, usually both.
