Stephanie Dray

About me

Stephanie graduated with a degree in Government from Smith, a small women’s college in Massachusetts where–to the consternation of her devoted professors–she was unable to master Latin. However, her focus on Middle Eastern Studies gave her a deeper understanding of the consequences of Egypt’s ancient clash with Rome, both in terms of the still-extant tensions between East and West as well as the worldwide decline of female-oriented religion.

Before she wrote novels, Stephanie was a lawyer, a game designer, and a teacher. Now she uses the transformative power of magic realism to illuminate the stories of women in history and inspire the young women of today. She remains fascinated by all things Roman or Egyptian and has–to the consternation of her devoted husband–collected a house full of cats and ancient artifacts.

An interesting perspective on the value of Historical Fiction in Turbulent Times

  Interesting thoughts from the Atlantic in this article. I’d love to see them expanded upon with real studies. The novels offer more than a good story—they can also be integral to critical-thinking skills, especially during periods of political turmoil.
