A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of historical fiction, LAURA KAMOIE has always been fascinated by the people, stories, and physical presence of the past, which led her to a lifetime of historical and archaeological study and training. She holds a doctoral degree in early American history from The College of William and Mary, published two non-fiction books on early America, and most recently held the position of Associate Professor of History at the U.S. Naval Academy before transitioning to a full-time career writing genre fiction. She is the author of AMERICA'S FIRST DAUGHTER and MY DEAR HAMILTON, co-authored with Stephanie Dray, allowing her the exciting opportunity to combine her love of history with her passion for storytelling. Laura lives among the colonial charm of Annapolis, Maryland with her husband and two daughters. 

In Ribbons of Scarlet, Laura wrote from the perspective of Emilie de Sainte-Amaranthe Sartine, a courtesan’s daughter whose renowned beauty won her admirers and the jealousy of those she rebuffed, both of which became important to her fate--and that of the Revolution itself--during the bloody Reign of Terror.

SOPHIE PERINOT is an award-winning author of female-centered historical novels The Sister Queens and Médicis Daughter (a Goodreads Best Book of the Month). Sophie was one of six writers who authored the ground-breaking historical novel-in-six-parts, A Day of Fire: Stories of Pompeii, a group which also included current Ribbons of Scarlet collaborators, Kate Quinn, Stephanie Dray and Eliza Knight. Sophie has both a BA in history and a law degree. Crazy for history from a young age, she enjoys setting her stories against a fully-realized past while simultaneously exploring issues and feelings so essentially human that they transcend any particular era.  When Sophie isn’t visiting corners of the past, she lives in Virginia with her three children, two dogs, two cats, and one husband.

In Ribbons of Scarlet, Sophie wrote from the perspective of the novel’s only Royalist—Princess Élisabeth—a woman driven by a deep faith in God and an unconditional loyalty to her doomed brother, King Louis XVI. 

HEATHER WEBB is the international bestselling author of six historical novels set in France, including her latest Last Christmas in Paris and the upcoming Meet Me in Monaco, set to the backdrop of Grace Kelly’s wedding, releasing in summer 2019. In 2015, Rodin’s Lover was selected as a Goodreads Top Pick, and in 2018, Last Christmas in Paris became a Globe & Mail bestseller and also won the Women’s Fiction Writers Association STAR Award. To date, Heather’s novels have received national starred reviews, and have been sold in a dozen countries worldwide. When not writing, you may find Heather collecting cookbooks or looking for excuses to travel. She lives in New England with her family and one feisty rabbit.


In Ribbons of Scarlet, Heather wrote from the perspective of witty, brash, and unruly Louise “Reine” Audu, the Queen of the Market Women, who led the first women’s march in history--on Versailles--to end royalty at all costs.
