Join the Sunday Times bestselling author of Ariadne and Elektra in conversation about her electrifying new novel, Atalanta.

​When a daughter is born to the King of Arcadia, she brings only disappointment. Left exposed on a mountainside, the defenceless infant is left to the mercy of a passing mother bear and raised alongside her cubs under the protective eye of the goddess Artemis. Swearing that she will prove her worth alongside the famed heroes of Greece, Atalanta leaves her forest to join Jason's band of Argonauts. But can she carve out her own place in the legends in a world made for men?

Discover how Jennifer Saint brought the formidable heroine to vivid life in her sweeping re-imagining of Greek myth.
