About the Author
Iny Lorentz is the pen name for the husband-and-wife writing team Iny Klocke and Elmar Wohlrath, historians whose tales of medieval action, adventure, and romance reflect their academic interests and love for each other. Together, they’ve written more than thirty-five books, almost all of which quickly became bestsellers. The five-book Marie series, perhaps their most popular, has sold more than five and a half million copies in Germany alone and has been translated into fourteen languages and recorded as audiobooks. The first book in the series, The Wandering Harlot, introduced the captivating and beloved character Marie, whose story has since been made into an award-winning German television movie called Die Wanderhure, starring actress Alexandra Neldel. Elmar and Iny live and write in Poing, near Munich.
