Book Recs?

Hi! It's been awhile since I've posted here but I thought I'd give it a try.

I really love biographies. Especially biographies on women. I tend to like to read biographies about women in creative fields. I usually start with a biography as an introduction to that person's work. For example I didn't read any of Sylvia Plath's work until after I read Rouge Magic.

So what I'm looking for is recommendations for biographies on women. I would rather they be in a creative field particularly writing but I also like bios about royals. It doesn't have to be a particular time period but I am fond of the Renaissance (English, French) and the Regency era.

Thank you in advance and I hope this post isn't too vague. If it is I can try to add more information.
