Kris Waldherr writes books that explore the hidden stories of women’s lives. Her newest novel is Unnatural Creatures, a sweeping reimagining of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein told through the eyes of the three women closest to Victor Frankenstein: his mother Caroline, bride Elizabeth, and servant Justine. Unnatural Creatures was named an Editor’s Choice by the Historical Novels Review, who praised it as “Worthy of comparison to Jean Rhys’s Wide Sargasso Sea . . . a splendid achievement from a writer at the height of her powers.” Kris’s debut novel The Lost History of Dreams was a Victorian-set gothic inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. It received a Kirkus star and was a CrimeReads Best Book of the Year. On the nonfiction side, Kris is the author of Doomed Queens: Royal Women Who Met Bad Ends and The Book of Goddesses, a One Spirit/Book of the Month Club bestseller. She began her publishing career writing, illustrating, and designing books for children.

Kris lives and works in Brooklyn in a Victorian-era house with her family and a noisy Bengal cat and a stealthy Ragdoll. In her free time, she adores travel and is currently learning French for her next historical novel. For more information, please visit Kris on her website,, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
