About Eileen Stephenson

Eileen Stephenson’s books about the Byzantine Empire include a novel, a book of short stories and a brief introduction to its history in the 11th century. A lover of history since early childhood, she became obsessed with the Byzantines after reading John Julius Norwich’s “A Short History of Byzantium,” a civilization that had received short shrift in every other history book she had ever perused. There’s been no looking back.

In her spare time, she drags her husband and other family members to assorted locations that have some Byzantine connection. Fortunately for them, these locales usually involve good food and great wine, along with amazing Byzantine sites.
