V. E. Ulett

A longtime resident of California, and professional in the electric power industry, Eva V. Ulett graduated from the University of Santa Clara, a Jesuit institution where the commencement speaker's advice was to read and read widely. A directive Ulett finds easy to follow. A member of the National Books Critics Circle and the Historical Novel Society, Ulett is an active book reviewer.

A keen interest in the Royal Navy of Nelson's day and the Europe of Napoleon's time led Ulett to research primary source materials, where she found a wealth of eighteenth and nineteenth century journals, travel accounts, and letters. This, combined with a passion for books and the agreeable sensation of falling into the past, inspired Ulett to write Captain Blackwell's Prize, originally published as an audiobook, described by one listener as "Patrick O'Brian with a romantic side."
