Eloisa chats for almost a half hour with @entertainmentweekly’s Maureen Lee Lenker about writing a shy heroine for Say Yes to the Duke, how many “wilde” puns she’s come up with, and how life in quarantine is treating her.
Eloisa discusses Shakespeare’s life and a great work he likely created while in quarantine from the bubonic plague: King Lear.
Eloisa shares how she met her husband, Alessandro Vettori ’95PhD, at Yale (He’s an Italian knight. For real) and why she started writing romance novels.
To be, or not to be—for Eloisa James, the real question is, why not be both? With degrees from Harvard, Yale, and Oxford, she finds time to write bestselling historical romance novels while teaching Shakespeare at Fordham University.
How a sensitivity reader helped romance novelist Eloisa James become more aware of her own blind spots, and made her determined to own her mistakes and grow.
