Valerie Ogden



When Valerie Ogden accidentally found out about Bluebeard, after her nephew married his descendant and the family hushed her sudden questions, she became absorbed and curious about his story. She researched his life at the Bibliotheque de Nantes in Brittany, France and visited the site of many of his massacres. The result is the fascinating book, Bluebeard: Brave Warrior, Brutal Psychopath. Ms. Ogden is an American actor, former editor at "House and Garden," and President of the Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
