About the author (1987)

Historical fiction author Alexandra Ripley was born on January 8, 1934. She majored in Russian at Vassar College and worked at numerous publishing houses before becoming an author. She published her first novel Who's That Lady in the President's Bed? using the pseudonym B. K. Ripley in 1972. She has written many best sellers but is perhaps best known for writing Scarlett, the sequel to Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind. Despite negativity from critics, the book was very popular with the public and the TV miniseries it spawned was the highest rated multi-part dramatic special of 1994. She died in Richmond, Virginia on January 10, 2004.
