Biography

Kris Waldherr

Kris Waldherr is the award-winning author and illustrator of DOOMED QUEENS: ROYAL WOMEN WHO MEET BAD ENDS (Broadway/Doubleday), THE BOOK OF GODDESSES (Abrams Books), and several other books for adults and children. The New Yorker called DOOMED QUEENS “utterly satisfying," while the New York Times Book Review praised her picture book PERSEPHONE AND THE POMEGRANTE for its “quality of myth and magic.” She lives in a ghost-ridden Victorian house in Brooklyn with her husband and tween-age daughter, who no longer likes princesses.
