Short biography
From Goodreads: Born on a farm in Little Rock, Iowa, June Rachuy Brindel earned her B.A. and M.A. from the University of Chicago. She began writing novels somewhat late in life, having held a variety of jobs (including secretary to a poet laureate) while she was younger. While teaching drama at the National Music Camp in Interlochen, Michigan in 1967, she wrote the play Automaton: King of Machines for her students to perform. She explored history and myth in her novels, including the Pulitzer Prize-nominated Ariadne: A Novel of Ancient Crete (1981), written from the overlooked women's perspective.

She also contributed short stories and poems to periodicals such as the Beloit Poetry Journal, Carolina Quarterly, Rhino, Primavera, MSS, Story Quarterly, and Kansas Quarterly.
