Энн Чемберлен

Ann Chamberlin is an American writer of historical novels. Her website states that the "purpose of storytelling . . . is to support positions in exact opposition to the views prevailing in a culture's powerhouses, whatever those views happen to be." This belief has led her to provide a feminist perspective on Middle Eastern affairs.
Chamberlin began writing stories as a child. Her interest in Islamic culture began when she worked on an archeology dig in Israel where she helped work on an ancient Ottoman settlement. Later in the trip she met the matriarch of an Islamic family "who, in spite of her hidden features, seemed to radiate a power and command a respect much greater than one might expect of a Muslim woman."
The trip led to her obtaining a BS in anthropology from the University of Utah, focusing on Middle Eastern culture.
