Sophie Perinot writes stories set against the past exploring issues and feelings so essentially human that they transcend any particular era. Her debut novel, "The Sister Queens," (2012/NAL), delved into the complicated and compelling bond between sisters--in this case Marguerite and Eleanor of Provence, 13th century queens of France and England. Perinot's, "Medicis Daughter," (2015/Thomas Dunne) traveled forward three-hundred years to the intrigue-riven French Valois court, spinning the tale of beautiful princess Marguerite who walked the knife edge between the demands of her serpentine mother, Catherine de Medicis, and those of her own conscience. Her next novel, "Ribbons of Scarlet," a collaborative work with fellow historical authors Kate Quinn, Stephanie Dray, Laura Kamoie, E. Knight and Heather Webb, offers a gutsy and sometimes gritty telling of the French Revolution from the female perspective. It will release in October 2019 and is available for pre-order now.
Perinot has both a BA in History and a law degree. She left the practice of law to pursue artistic interests, including writing. An active member of the Historical Novel Society, she has attended all of the group's North American Conferences and served as a panelist multiple times.
When she is not visiting corners of the past, Sophie lives in Great Falls Virginia with her three children, two cats, twp dogs and one husband.
