Lawyer & NY Times Bestselling Author; Best Known for "The Only Woman in the Room"

​Marie Benedict is a lawyer with more than ten years' experience as a litigator at two of the country's premier law firms, who found her calling unearthing the hidden historical stories of women.

Her mission is to excavate from the past the most important, complex and fascinating women of history and bring them into the light of present-day where we can finally perceive the breadth of their contributions as well as the insights they bring to modern day issues.

Benedict embarked on a new, narratively connected series of historical novels with The Other Einstein, which tells the tale of Albert Einstein's first wife, a physicist herself, and the role she might have played in his theories.

The next novel in this series is the USA Today bestselling Carnegie's Maid, which released in January of 2018, and the book that followed is the New York Times bestseller The Only Woman in the Room, which published in January of 2019.

Most recently, Lady Clementine was released in January 2020. Writing as Heather Terrell, Benedict also published the historical novels The Chrysalis, The Map Thief, and Brigid of Kildare.
