Biography

Gita Trelease

Born in Sweden to Indian and Swedish parents, Gita Trelease has lived in lots of places, including New York, Paris and a tiny town in central Italy. She attended Yale College and New York University, where she earned a Ph.D. in British literature. Before becoming a novelist, she taught classes on writing, monsters, and fairy tales --- some of which have seeped into her stories. Along with her husband and son, Gita divides her time between an old village in Massachusetts and the coast of Maine, where she’s still searching for a secret portal that will take her back to Versailles.

Relying on magic, Camille painstakingly transforms scraps of metal into money to buy food and medicine. But when the coins won’t hold their shape and her brother disappears with the money, Camille pursues the glittering court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Using dark magic forbidden by her mother, Camille transforms herself into a baroness. But magic has its costs, and soon Camille loses control of her secrets. And when revolution erupts, Camille must choose --- love or loyalty, democracy or aristocracy, reality of magic --- before Paris burns.
