About the Author

Carlyn Beccia's published works include Who Put the B in the Ballyhoo? and The Raucous Royals. The latter was inspired by her trip to Paris: “I went to Versailles,” she writes, “and discovered that Marie Antoinette never said her infamous line ‘Let them eat cake.’ Then I remembered also believing that Anne Boleyn had six fingers. After much digging, I discovered that one of her biographers after her death said she had an extra nail. A nail isn’t a finger. That discovery led to another rumor and then another.”
