Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
To be perfectly honest, until recently, I had only the most commonplace knowledge of Albert Einstein and had never even heard of his first wife, Mileva Maric. But then, one day, I helped my son Jack with a report on the wonderful Scholastic children's book Who Was Albert Einstein?, and it mentioned briefly that Albert Einstein's first wife was a physicist. I became intrigued. I wondered who was this woman, a physicist when very few women even had university educations. And I became curious about the role she might have played in the great scientist's discoveries. Once I dug into the research about Mileva and her life, the idea for THE OTHER EINSTEIN was born.
