About this author

Erika Mailman is the author of The Witch's Trinity (Random House, 2007), a novel about a medieval woman accused of witchcraft, and Woman of Ill Fame (Heyday Books, 2007), about a Gold Rush prostitute. She has also published two non-fiction books about Oakland history, and is a columnist for the Montclarion newspaper in Oakland. She is a graduate of the MFA program in poetry at the University of Arizona, Tucson, and currently teaches novel writing through www.mediabistro.com. Her first novel took her eight years to write and is unpublishable. She figured out how to outline, and wrote the first draft of her second novel in one month--and it's now in print (Woman of Ill Fame).

I was transported to a Venice of intoxicating sounds and smells, wholly authentic. Isabella is a compelling character, desiring to sing in an era when only castrati tenors can sing the high notes. The descriptions of music are wonderf
