Interview with Helen R Davis on May 8, 2017
Helen R. Davis, whose first novel was CLEOPATRA UNCONQUERED, began researching Eva Perón, a woman just as fascinating and interesting as Cleopatra VII, in 2001, around the same time her writing journey began. Davis discovered Eva in a collective biography called LIVES OF EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN: Rulers, Rebels (and what the Neighbors Thought) that featured 20 short stories about famous women who had influenced nations, from Cleopatra to Indira Gahndi. Though the stories of women such as Isabella of Spain, Elizabeth I of England, and Joan of Arc, all who were featured in the book, were known to her, it was Eva's that caught Davis's attention as she was entranced by Eva's brief but Hollywood-esque life and story She then began reading biographies of Evita in English, and even studied Spanish in honor of this legendary woman. In 2007, Davis finally went to Argentina to absorb the myth, legend, and history of Evita. In this process, she went to the Eva Peron Museum in Buenos Aires and even met people who had known the First Lady.
