Kris Waldherr writes for both young and adult audiences, and previous books include Bad Princess, Doomed Queens, and The Book of Goddesses. The New Yorker has praised Doomed Queens as “utterly satisfying” and “deliciously perverse.” She is also a visual artist, whose art has been featured in numerous galleries and museums, including the National Museum of Women in the Arts and the Ruskin Library.
Her latest work, The Lost History of Dreams, has been described by Booklist as “an unexpected delight that grows steadily more compelling as its pages fly by.” Famed poet Hugh de Bonne is found dead in his bath of a heart attack. His cousin Robert Highstead, a historian turned post-mortem photographer, is tasked with transporting the body to the small chapel built by de Bonne sixteen years prior. Before he can do this, Robert will first unearth dark secrets of the past that not only illuminates the tragic events of Hugh’s life, but also Robert’s future.
