About the author

Keira Morgan

The adventure and romance of Renaissance has fascinated Keira since she was young.

It isn’t just the history. In her fiction, readers enter the world of the French court with its irresistible characters, and dangerous intrigues. The accurate historical details of food and clothing, chateaux and furnishings, coaches and litters, gardens and chapels, friends and children bring the world to life as her historical characters struggle with their real-life challenges.

She studied Renaissance and Reformation history in Canadian universities to the doctoral level. But her favourite reading was historical fiction, since in it authors explored the feelings and thoughts that motivated people rather than just the facts. When she recognized she would rather write fiction than history, she chose a career in the Canadian public service and wrote in her free time.

She now lives in Mexico with her husband, two dogs and two cats where she writes full time. The Importance of Sons is the second of her published novels.  She is writing a four-part series in the Chronicles of the House of Valois. The Importance of Pawns is already available.
