What's New in Historical Fiction

By History Through Fiction

Please join History Through Fiction for What's New in Historical Fiction, a regular panel series featuring historical novelists with new and upcoming titles. Moderated by History Through Fiction editor, Colin Mustful, this special panel features:

Erika Robuck author of Sisters of Night and Fog
Patricia Bernstein author of A Noble Cunning
Edie Cay author of A Viscount's Vengeance
Stephanie Marie Thornton author of Her Lost Words

Erika Robuck is the national bestselling author of The Invisible Woman, Hemingway’s GirlCall Me Zelda, Fallen Beauty, The House of Hawthorne, and Receive Me Falling. Her newest novel, Sisters of Night and Fog, is a heart-stopping novel based on the extraordinary true stories of an American socialite and a British secret agent whose stunning acts of courage collide in the darkest hours of World War II.

Patricia Bernstein is an American writer and public relations expert. She is best known for her books Ten Dollars to Hate: The Texas Man Who Fought the Klan and The First Waco Horror: the Lynching of Jesse Washington and the Rise of the NAACP. Her debut fiction novel, A Noble Cunning, is a thrilling tale, based on a true story, of one woman's tremendous courage and incomparable wit in trying to rescue her husband from the Tower of London the night before he is to be executed.

Edie Cay writes hard-hitting Feminist Pugilist Regency Romances. Earl’s daughters with secrets, women boxers, blacksmiths on quests, underworld procurers, and upstart stockbrokers all get their due—love. In her newest novel, A Viscount's Vengeance, a brooding viscount carries the weight of his dead father's misdeeds. An unassuming young woman who knows more than she lets on. A marriage of convenience that comes to blows in the boxing ring.

Stephanie Marie Thornton is writer, librarian, and high school history teacher who has been obsessed with forgotten women from history since she was twelve. Her first two novels, The Secret History: A Novel of Empress Theodora and Daughter of the Gods: A Novel of Ancient Egypt reimagine the lives of two of history’s forgotten women: Theodora of the Byzantine Empire and Pharaoh Hatshepsut. Her newest novel, Her Lost Words, is a tale of two literary legends–Mary Shelley & her mother, Mary Wollstonecraft–who both shaped the world with their words.
