Deborah Harkness

Deborah Harkness is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and a professor at the University of Southern California. A prize-winning historian, she specializes in the history of science and European history in the fifteenth through the seventeenth centuries. She has been studying history—particularly the history of science, magic, and alchemy—for more than twenty-five years.

The first book in Harkness’s beloved All Souls series, A Discovery of Witches, was an instant New York Times bestseller and the series has since expanded with the addition of subsequent NYT bestsellers, Shadow of Night (2012), The Book of Life (2014), and Time’s Convert (2018), as well as the companion reader, The World of All Souls. The series has been translated in thirty-eight languages and is now a popular Sky/Sundance Now and AMC television series titled after the first book, “A Discovery of Witches.”
