About Sandra Gulland

I am the author of Mistress of the Sun and the Josephine B. Trilogy, which is now published in 14 countries, and in 12 languages. Mistress of the Sun, also a historical novel, is set in mid-17th century France. It is inspired by the life of Louise de La Vallière, an extraordinary equestrian and mistress of the Sun King.
An American-Canadian, I was born in Miami, Florida, and lived in Rio de Janeiro, Berkeley and Chicago before immigrating to Canada in 1970 to teach in an Inuit village in northern Labrador. Settling in Toronto, I worked as a book editor for a decade before moving with my husband and two young children to a log house in northern Ontario, where, in 1985, I began writing full-time. Ten years later, the first of the novels in the Josephine B. Trilogy was published.
My husband and I now live half the year in Ontario, and half in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. For more information about me, my research and work, see my website: www.sandragulland.com.
