About the Author

Historian Missy Wolfe has always loved histories and biographies that allow her to time travel to meet unusual people and experience dramatic events. Growing up, she loved the works of Lady Antonia Fraser, Alison Weir, and Barbara Tuchman. Impressed by their research and writing, Wolfe began investigating the earliest history of her home town, Greenwich, Connecticut. For this she was also inspired by Nathaniel Philbrick's Mayflower and Russell Shorto's Island at the Center of the World.

After receiving an MBA from Columbia University and an early career in advertising, Wolfe pursued her interests in history, design and fine and decorative arts with an Associates degree from the New York School of Interior Design and a certificate of 
Appraisal Studies for Fine and Decorative Arts from New York University. She remains fascinated by the past and its appreciation by the modern world.
