Clarissa Harwood holds a PhD in English literature with a specialization in nineteenth-century British literature and is the author of three historical novels: The Curse of Morton Abbey, Bear No Malice, and Impossible Saints. Publishers Weekly called Impossible Saints “a rich debut. . . . With insight and sensitivity, Harwood explores century-old social mores and challenges that still echo loudly today.” Bear No Malice won the Editor's Choice Award from the Historical Novel Society; Kirkus Reviews called it “a smart and highly civilized tale about love, temptation, and second chances.” Clarissa is a part-time university instructor and full-time grammar nerd who loves to explain the difference between restrictive and nonrestrictive clauses. She lives in Ontario, Canada, with her husband and three spoiled cats.
