Jeanne Kalogridis is a popular American writer of science fiction, horror fiction, and historical fiction stories. She has written several mind-blowing standalone books in her career, including The Burning Times, The Inquisitor’s Wife, The Borgia Bride, Spectors, The Devil’s Queen, The Orphan of Florence, I, Mona Lisa, etc. Kalogridis is also famous for writing the book series called The Diaries of the Family Dracul. In addition to writing under her real name, Kalogridis uses the pen name of J.M. Dillard for writing the Star Trek novels. Her novelizations of the Star Trek movies are quite popular. Author Kalogridis was born on December 17, 1954, in Winter, Haven, Florida, United States. She graduated from the South Florida University and obtained a bachelor of arts degree in Russian language and also a master of arts degree in Linguistics.

Following her post-graduation, Kalogridis was employed as a teacher of English. She taught the language at Washington, DC-based America University as a foreign language. After quitting this job, Kalogridis relocated to the West Coast. Author Kalogridis says that she had developed an interest in books at an early age. It was her interest that led her to pursue Linguistics in college and obtain a degree in the subject. While Kalogridis was growing up, she was involved in reading books of different authors. Her interests were mainly in reading science fiction and horror stories. The authors that influenced her very much include Angela Carter, Bram Stoker, Tanith Lee, Dan Simmons, Ray Bradbury, etc.

After her retirement from the teaching job, Kalogridis thought of trying her hand at writing novels. And following a few initial attempts, she settled down as a full-time writer of historical and horror fiction novels. As of today, Kalogridis resides in California with her partner. She likes to spend her free time in the company of her loving partner and her Labrador retriever. The other interests of author Kalogridis outside of writing include reading books, practicing yoga, going for long walks, training her dog, learning about Buddhism, and looking after her house chores. Kalogridis looks forward to writing many more exciting novels in the years to come and entertain her fans with her excellent writing skills.

A popular book penned by author Jeanne Kalogridis is entitled ‘The Scarlet of Contessa’. It was released in 2010 by St Martin’s Press. The book is set in Italy and features the lead character in the role of Caterina Sforza. Several other essential characters described by Kalogridis in this book include Girolamo Riario, Dea, Cesare Borgia, etc. Caterina Sforza is depicted as a countess of Renaissance Italy, whose willfulness and passion know no bounds. She is introduced as the daughter of Milan’s duke. Caterina Sforza is seen as one of the bravest warriors Italy has ever known. A conniving Count named Girolamo Riario is her husband. During her time, Caterina ruled her lands, fought battles on her own, and took lovers when she needed without fearing anyone. The remarkable tale of Caterina Sforza is narrated by Dea, who is her lady-in-waiting. Dea is described as a knowledgeable woman. She is an expert at reading triumph cards and is considered a predecessor of the modern-day Tarot card readers.

Dea tries to find the truth about the murder of Caterina Sforza’s murder. Meanwhile, she keeps herself busy with keeping the invaders off of her lands. Following the death of Caterina’s husband, many invaders tried to steal her lands and overthrow her title. But, she single-handedly fought them off. When Dea’s card reading reveals that Caterina won’t be able to withstand the next invader, she becomes worried. This new invader is none other than the son of Pope Alexander VI named Cesare Borgia. He is as corrupt as his father and is looking to settle a past score with Caterina. When Borgia comes to attack with his army, Caterina finds herself trapped inside the walls of her Ravaldino Fortress. The fortress walls get pounded by Cesare Borgia’s cannons, while Dea continues to work the scandalous past of Caterina to find a way to defeat Borgia. And while she struggles with the card reading, Caterina continues to try and fight off the unconquerable army of Borgia.

Another excellent novel written by Kalogridis is known as ‘The Orphan of Florence’. It was published by St Martin’s Griffin in 2017. The main characters of this novel include Giulia, Lorenzo, Niccolo, and several others. Kalogridis has set this novel’s story in Florence. Initially, Giulia is introduced as an orphan. She has always been an orphan and has been raised in the popular Ospedale Degli Innocenti, located in Florence. Giulia’s insubordinate behavior and her habit of asking probing questions made others to see her as an unwelcome presence. Therefore, when she became 15 years old, she was given the choice of either get married to an unknown man or become a nun. Giulia decided to choose neither of the choices and against the advice of an elderly suitor, she ran off from the orphanage and started living on Florence’ streets. Giulia becomes a pickpocket to earn her livelihood.

After successfully spending two years at not getting caught, she finally gets caught by an old man whose purses she tried to make off. But, instead of handing her over to the police, the mysterious man offers Giulia to join him in his business. He claims to work for Florence’s most powerful families as a cabalist and a Jewish mysticism student. However, the man keeps his identity hidden and is only known as the Magician of Florence. Intrigued by the man, Giulia agrees to work as his assistant. She starts smuggling the man’s talisman in the entire city. Later, it is revealed that the man had lied to her about the talismans. And when the man gets murdered by other mysterious men, Giulia finds herself trapped in the treacherous web of deceit and espionage. People with high contacts in Naples and Rome start chasing her. As Giulia faces the accusation of the man’s murder, she is trailed by a handsome policeman named Niccolo, several foreign spies, and the henchmen of Lorenzo. The only way she can save herself from all of them is by solving the mystery and finding the killer. Giulia prepares herself to take the dangerous path and get to the bottom of the mystery.
