Historical novelist Sophie Perinot has authored two books about European royalty in which her characters face challenges and grapple with feelings so essentially human that they transcend any era. In addition to her solo novels—published by Thomas Dunne Books (Macmillan) and Berkeley (Penguin)—she has also worked with novelists like Kate Quinn, Ben Kane, Eliza Knight, and Heather Webb creating collaborative novels about the French Revolution and the destruction of Pompeii. Sophie is an active member of the Historical Novel Society.
