About the Author
Sylvia Prince writes intense, page turning historical fiction. Her action-packed novels bring the past to life. Salem Mean Girls
retells the Salem witch trials in the style of Mean Girls
. The Lion and the Fox
throws Niccolo Machiavelli into the dangerous world of Florentine patricians, where he must risk his life to regain the favor of the powerful Medici family. The Zorzi Affair
, a coming-of-age story set in seventeenth-century Italy, follows Zaneta Lucia Zorzi as she rejects an arranged marriage to pursue her true passion: science.
Sylvia holds a PhD in history--and loves the bizarre but true stories she has encountered over the years working as a historian. Did you know, for example, that in 1492 the pope received a blood transfusion by literally drinking the blood of three young boys? (It didn't work--the pope and the boys all died.) Sylvia is lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and two spirited daughters.
