Thank you for visiting my website! My goal as a historical novelist is to provide you, the reader, with high-quality fiction about women and the forgotten and undervalued roles they played in their societies. Whether it’s the real-life physicist Emilie du Chatelet, the literary heroine Penelope, or women who have sprung entirely from my imagination, I offer you stories true to the facts of a time and place.

Please check back from time to time for updates on my new projects, and drop me a line at email@example.com to let me know you're out there reading!
