I’m spending lots of time in Renaissance Italy (in my head) as I work on writing a new book. Here are some of my inspirations… I’m really excited! Scroll over the pictures for tidbits about them.

Petrus and Catherine Gonzales, Antoinetta’s parents
Enrico Gonzales (aka Arrigo the Hairy), Antoinetta’s brother, who claims to be a prince
