Marie  Benedict

Marie Benedict, a former New York City lawyer, had long fantasized about a fantasy work as an archaeologist or historian, unraveling the larger secrets of the past -- before she tried her hand at writing. She realized she could explore the probable realities buried in history through fiction while writing her first novel, THE OTHER EINSTEIN, the story of Mileva Maric, Albert Einstein's first wife and a physicist herself, and has done so in THE OTHER EINSTEIN. Marie also wrote The Chrysalis, The Map Thief, and Brigid of Kildare under the pen name Heather Terrell. She is a Boston College and Boston University School of Law graduate who currently resides in Pittsburgh with her family.
