About meI'm a historical fiction author of THE LAST QUEEN, about Juana la Loca of Castile (Ballantine Books, 2008); THE CONFESSIONS OF CATHERINE DE MEDICI (Ballantine, 2010) and THE TUDOR SECRET (St Martin's Press / Griffen, 2011).

THE LAST QUEEN was a Marin Independent Journal bestseller and was released in trade paperback in May, 2009. It has sold in twelve countries to date. My next novel, THE CONFESSIONS OF CATHERINE DE MEDICI, was released in the spring of 2010 and has sold in six countries to date.

I have an MFA in Writing, with a major in Renaissance Studies and I love talking to book groups. Please visit my website at to learn more about me, my books, and to schedule an author chat, as well as view a special news on me and my work.
