Nicole (N.D.) Galland’s novels span the spectrum from historical to Shakespearean to contemporary romcom to speculative fiction. Her 2017 novel The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O., co-written with Neal Stephenson, is a New York Times Best Seller. Her newest novel, On the Same Page, will be released later this month.

She is the author of the contemporary comic novel Stepdog, as well as five works of historical fiction: I, Iago; The Fool’s Tale; Godiva; Revenge of the Rose; and Crossed: A Tale of the Fourth Crusade. She is also coauthor of the “alternative history” trilogy The Mongoliad.

Nicole grew up on Martha’s Vineyard, where she now writes a cheeky etiquette column for the MV Times and is cofounder of Shakespeare for the Masses, a project that irreverently makes the Bard accessible to the Bardophobics of the world. She has also worked as a stage director, dramaturg, and X-wing fighter pilot.

She holds an honors degree from Harvard University in the comparative study of religion, and was a PhD Fellow in drama at UC Berkeley.
