About the Author:

Dartmouth graduate Victoria Grossack leads an international life, with homes in Switzerland and Arizona and a professional career in the financial industry that has spanned the Atlantic. She is fluent in German and French (and English of course) and has an MBA. Her last full-time position was as a Senior Vice President in New York City for a reinsurance company, but she is currently writing full-time and living with her husband who is a professor at the University of Arizona. Her writing has been published in Contingencies, Woman’s World, I Love Cats, and The Journal of Actuarial Practice. She was a regular columnist for Writing-World and contributes frequently to Doux Reviews and to ReFiction. She also tutors mathematics, as problems in algebra and geometry make a nice break from creative writing. Besides writing Greek mythology based novels, she is the solo author of mysteries set in Jane Austen's novels: The Meryton Murders and The Highbury Murders. Alice Underwood studied classics at The University of Texas and Princeton University while earning her degrees in mathematics. Her passion for antiquity has taken her from the shadowed catacombs of Princeton’s libraries to the ruins of Pompeii and the sunny shores of Crete and Santorini. Alice leads the global insurance consulting and technology practice at one of the world’s top financial service companies; she lives and works in New York City.
