Gill Paul has written 11 historical novels, many of them re-evaluating real 20th century women and trying to get inside their heads. Her books have reached the top of the USA Today, Toronto Globe & Mail, and U.K. Kindle charts, and have been translated into 21 languages. Gill was born and raised in Scotland, apart from an eventful year at school in the U.S. when she was 10. She worked as an editor in nonfiction publishing then as a ghostwriter for celebrities, before giving up the “day job” to write fiction full time. She also writes short stories for magazines and speaks at literary festivals about subjects ranging from the British royal family to the Romanovs. Gill swims year-round in an open-air pond—“It’s good for you so long as it doesn’t kill you”—and loves travelling whenever and wherever she can.
