More About the Author

Penelope Rowlands is a journalist and the author of A DASH OF DARING, the biography of Carmel Snow, the brilliant Irish-American editor-in-chief of the U.S. edition of Harper's Bazaar (from 1934-1958).

Rowlands was the editor of two well-received anthologies, THE BEATLES ARE HERE! and PARIS WAS OURS -- in both cases contributing an essay of her own, as well as the introduction. She has also written three books on design, including monographs on Jean Prouvé and Eileen Gray.

Her latest project, a biographical work about the later years of Aaron Burr, the American "Founding Father", will be published in 2015.
