The Heretic Queen
by Michelle Moran
I was very happy to find the brand new copy of the latest novel by Michelle Moran waiting for me on my doorstep earlier this week.
The second Egyptian novel (after Nefertiti) by Michelle Moran arrived last month to praises from some of the most successful and prominent historical fiction around. Robin Maxwell, author of Mademoiselle Boleyn, writes, “Performing deft feats of Egyptian magic, Michelle Moran transforms stone-cold history-from-hieroglyphs into gripping narrative, peopled by unforgettable characters seething with conflict and passion. I couldn’t stop reading, but I didn’t want this book to end.”
Lauren Willig, author of The Secret History of the Pink Carnation, agreed writing, “Michelle Moran breathes new life into the faded paintings on tomb walls, bringing Ramesses, Nefertari, and the whole panoply of ancient Egyptian splendor to vivid, bustling, page-turning life.”
I emailed Moran when I heard that her new book was coming out and she was kind enough to agree to do a second interview. Here is a link to my first interview with Michelle Moran. Stay tuned for our second interview, coming soon.
