Genevieve Gornichec earned her degree in history from the Ohio State University, but she got as close to majoring in Vikings as she possibly could, and her study of Norse myths and Icelandic sagas became her writing inspiration. Her national bestselling debut novel, The Witch’s Heart, has been translated into more than ten languages. She lives in Cleveland, Ohio.
Intimate and sweeping, richly detailed and propulsive, tragic and uplifting, The Weaver and the Witch Queen proves Genevieve Gornichec really can do it all. Oddny and Gunnhild's story is epic, timeless, and most of all honest in its portrayal of the indomitable strength of women, the joys and pains of sisterhood, and the limitless power of love in all its many forms. -Vaishnavi Patel, New York Times bestselling author of Kaikeyi An epic novel about magic, sisterhood, and the bonds that can both bind and break us. This story stayed with me long after I finished reading. -Alexis Henderson, Author of The Year of the Witching From the moment I picked up The Weaver and the Witch Queen, I was enthralled. This is a rich, magical reimagining of Viking history, with all the bloodshed, tragedy and tangled webs of fate required of any great epic-but it is above all a gloriously woven tapestry of love, loyalty, and the extraordinary bonds of sisterhood. -Sangu Mandanna, Author of The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches Entwines impeccable storytelling, fascinating historical detail and characters so nuanced and mercilessly human that I fell for every one of them and still can't let them go. Give me everything Gornichec writes-I will devour it. -H.M. Long, Author of Hall of Smoke Beautifully woven and achingly human...a masterful tale about sisterhood, destiny, and what we're willing to do for the people we love. Gunnhild and Oddny's journeys cut to the heart of what it feels like to be right and wrong, together and alone, bold and afraid, all at once. I loved it. -Allison Epstein, author of A Tip for the Hangman
