Kate Quinn

Kate Quinn attended Boston University, where she earned a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Classical Voice. The daughter of a history major, she grew up with anecdotes about Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great, wrote her first story at age seven, and, after seeing Spartacus, resolved someday to write a book about a gladiator. That ambition turned into "Mistress of Rome." She is also the author of "Daughters of Rome" and "Empress of the Seven Hills. "
