Zenobia Neil was named after an ancient warrior queen who fought against the Romans. She writes historical fiction and historical fantasy from under-represented perspectives. Her debut novel Psyche Unbound won a publishing contract. Her second novel The Jinni’s Last Wish takes place in the Imperial Ottoman Harem and focuses on a eunuch, a mysterious Jewish woman, and a jinni. Her third novel The Queen of Warriors is about a Spartan woman warrior in search of redemption in the war-torn remains of Alexander the Great's empire. Her newest novel, Ariadne Unraveled is a Mythic Retelling of the love story between Ariadne and Dionysus, which takes place in Bronze Age Crete and surrounding Aegean islands. She lives in Los Angeles with her family. ...more
