Philippa Gregory is the New York Times bestselling author of the new book The Red Queen and other historical novels such as The Other Boleyn Girl which was made into a film starring Scarlett Johansson.

In my interview with her today, Gregory tells GalleyCat all about her writing process and what she advises aspiring authors to do if they wish to break into today’s marketplace.

Gregory is also giving away a copy of the novel, courtesy of her publisher (Touchstone) to one of our GalleyCat readers. Simply comment in this post between now and August 24th at 4pm ET and someone will be randomly selected to win a copy of The Red Queen. The publisher will mail the winner a copy.
