Emily Holleman is a Brooklyn-based writer. After a two-year editing stint at Salon.com where she had to worry a lot about politics, celebrities and memes, she returned to her true passion: fiction. She’s currently working on a set of historical novels that reimagines the saga of Cleopatra from the perspective of her younger sister, Arsinoe. The first of these, Cleopatra’s Shadows, will be published by Little, Brown in October 2015.

Like Arsinoe, Emily is also a younger sister.

Thanks so much, Morwenna! That's so lovely to hear -- I hope The Drowning King reaches you soon! I'm taking a break from the Ptolemies for a moment, and working on what (I think) will be a one-off novel (very different world -- dystopian future). Aft See Full Answer
