Marie Benedict

Once a New York City lawyer, Marie Benedict long dreamed about a job unraveling the larger mysteries of the past as an archaeologist or historian—before she tried her hand at writing. While drafting her first book, she realized that she could excavate the possible truths lurking in history through fiction, and has done so in THE OTHER EINSTEIN, the story of Mileva Maric, Albert Einstein's first wife and an acclaimed physicist herself. Writing as Heather Terrell, Marie also authored THE CHRYSALIS, THE MAP THIEF, and BRIGID OF KILDARE. She is a graduate of Boston College and the Boston University School of Law, and lives in Pittsburgh with her family.
