Before Lynne Olson began writing books full-time, she worked more than ten years as a journalist, including stints as Moscow correspondent for the Associated Press and White House correspondent for the Baltimore Sun. Four of her five books—all works of history—have dealt in some way with London during World War II. Among her titles are A Question of Honor, Troublesome Young Men, Freedom's Daughters, and the national bestseller Citizens of London. Olson has won the Christopher Award and has been shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in history. She lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband.
