Sarah Chloe Burns is currently an Adjunct Professor of History with the College of the Canyons History Department in Santa Clarita, California, past Lecturer with the California State University Bakersfield's History Department, and past Adjunct Professor of History with Bakersfield College's History Department. While teaching at Bakersfield College, she created the only American Women's History survey course being taught at a California Community College at the time. Within Burns's areas of expertise in European History, Colonial and Modern American History, and Women's History, her concentration on gender and race relations has served as the impetus for her first novel: DAUGHTERS OF JUNO, CHRONICLE I; MATILDA OF ARGYLL (© 2004), from Ivy House Books, an imprint of Pentland Press (NC). The book was published in March of 2004, and was soon designated as one of "Bakersfield's Best" for 2004, by Russo's Bookstore. It is currently under publication in its second and revised edition as MATILDA OF ARGYLL, with University Press of the South
