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. My novels are populated with real and invented characters, to bring history to life and make you feel as much a part of other lives and other cultures as you do your own.

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