About the Author
Linda Rodriguez McRobbie has written for the Boston Herald, Christian Science Monitor, CNN Money, US News & World Report, and Mental Floss. She lives in London with her husband, son, and cat.
Douglas Smith is an award-winning illustrator. He is perhaps best known for illustrating Gregory Maguire’s Wicked novels.
The stories could almost appear in People magazine since they paint these women as very interesting characters that try to get to the meat of the story rather than the glossing over by history. I would love this to be a television series on the History Channel. That would be such a wonderful take. Each week could star a new historical princess from ancient to modern times. And modern times are covered nicely here as well, with Britain’s Princess Margaret and Diana noted.
