Claudia Riess, a Vassar graduate, has worked in the editorial department of The New Yorker and has edited art history monographs. Her first novel, RECLINING NUDE, was published by Stein and Day. Oliver Sacks, neurologist and author of Awakenings commented:"...exquisite--and delicate...a most courageous book, full of daring--a daring only possible to a passionate and pure heart."
My novel,STOLEN LIGHT, has just been released. It's a suspense set in the art world and involving the Italian Renaissance, the Cuban Revolution, as well as a contemporary love story. "...characters have all the capability, chemistry, and give-and-take of a strong mystery-solving duo...complex and intriguing..." ---Kirkus Reviews
As my previous novel, RECLINING NUDE, was published in Germany (several editions, Heyne Verlag) and in the UK (Severn House), I'd like to see if STOLEN LIGHT (as well as several other novels in the works) can be marketed abroad. (NB: The rights to RECLINING NUDE reverted to me by Scarborough House.)
