    About the Author
Amy Schapiro's interest in Millicent Fenwick was sparked in college when she wrote her senior thesis on Rep. Fenwick. It was in the course of her research that she was surprised to learn no biography had been written on her subject.

Although the pair never met, they did exchange letters pertaining to Schapiroís college thesis. A few months after the project was completed, Fenwick died and an idea was born--to write the first biography of Mrs. Fenwick.

This was made possible in large measure by Hugh Fenwick, Millicent's son, who granted Schapiro exclusive authorization rights to his mother's private papers, letters, journals, and photographs, without which a biography on Millicent Fenwick would be incomplete.

Schapiro, a native of New Jersey, has spoken around the country at book stores, universities, book festivals, writerís conferences, the Library of Congress, and the National Archives. She has been featured on several radio programs and has appeared on C-Spanís BookTV. She currently lives in Washington, D.C. and works at the U.S. Department of Justice.
