Margaret George writes biographical novels about outsized historical characters: Henry VIII, Mary Queen of Scots, Cleopatra, Mary Magdalene, Helen of Troy, and Elizabeth I. Her latest, The Confessions of Young Nero, will be published in March. All six of her novels have been New York Times bestsellers and have sold over 1.5 million copies. Her novel Memoirs of Cleopatra was also made into an Emmy-nominated ABC-TV miniseries. She especially enjoys the research she has done for the novels, such as racing in an ancient Greek stadium, attending a gladiator training school in Rome, and studying the pharmacology of snake poison. She currently lives with her husband Paul in Madison, Wisconsin.
