About Stephanie Cowell
My new novel is coming July 2023! THE BOY IN THE RAIN, set in Edwardian England 1903, is a love story between two men, a shy young artist and a rising socialist speaker, as they struggle to build a life together against personal obstacles and the dangers of prosecution under the gross indecency laws. It will be published by Regal House and I think this is going to be a very big adventure. This is my second novel with a strong love story between two men; the first was between Shakespeare and the Earl of Southampton in my novel THE PLAYERS.
Though this is my first new novel in several years, I have been working on three or four others which I hope will make their appearance in the not too distant future.
To my great surprise, my novel CLAUDE & CAMILLE: A NOVEL OF CLAUDE MONET is still being picked up by book clubs and selling nicely in translation in Germany and Italy. It's the story of Monet in his 20s and 30s as he struggles to sell his work and manage his love for the beautiful, elusive Camille who would die young and forever remain his muse.
My other novels MARRYING MOZART, THE PLAYERS, THE PHYSICIAN OF LONDON AND NICHOLAS COOKE all continue to find readers. They were translated into several languages and MARRYING MOZART was turned into an opera.
I was born in New York City and still live there; in fact, I have lived in the same apartment for 47 years. My heart is half in England/Europe where I have family and consider myself an emotional citizen there.
Please do visit my website StephanieCowell.com. I will be starting a very special mini-blog soon about life in England 1903: arts and sexuality in Edwardian England.

The talented but conflicted Nicholas Cooke wanted to be an Anglican priest since he was a child, yet his fiery temperament consigned him to far different apprenticeships. His adventures lead him to become an actor, a soldier, and, as he grew older, a physician. During his lifetime Nicholas encounters Shakespeare, plague, the secret life of the Queen, many loves, marriage and children, the joy of the theatre, and the troubles of war. He serves his master, John Heminges, who teaches him the craft of acting; but it is the master's wife who teaches Nick about love. Yet he never can forget his early call to be a priest until in the depths of losses he cannot face, an unexpected door opens to him at last.
From the dramatic opening lines to the inspiring conclusion of this first book of this trilogy, Nicholas Cooke grows, stumbles, presses on, and eventually becomes a man whom others respect and recognize as a brilliant mind and a sensitive, loving soul. But there is much more to Nick's story, and, as Nicholas himself might have understood, an end is but a beginning.
NICHOLAS COOKE was a choice of the History Book Club. It is the first part of a trilogy which will take Nicholas from 1593 to 1666, from his boyhood through the fall of the monarchy and its eventual restoration. The next novel, THE PHYSICIAN OF LONDON (which will be available as an e-book late 2012) won an American Book Award. The last book of the trilogy will be published towards the end of 2013.
Stephanie Cowell is also the author of CLAUDE & CAMILLE: A NOVEL OF MONET (Crown), MARRYING MOZART (Viking Penguin) and THE PLAYERS: A NOVEL OF THE YOUNG SHAKESPEARE (W.W. Norton).
