Many might know me from various RWA Conferences as the Crazy
Costume Lady, and for this, I make no apology for my love of historical clothing, accessories and way of life.
I am very fortunate to have an extremely talented mother who creates the most incredible historical gowns for me…and, all I have to do is provide copious amounts of tea and toast during the process!
One of the reasons I like to wear the gowns is they give me a true sense of what is was like to live in them everyday, and helps me to ‘keep it real’ in my books. Sure, we all love fiction, but I try to keep it believable and factual where i can, as well as entertaining.
I confess I’m a bit of a hussy, and have been known to show off my ‘unmentionables’ to anyone who asks to see them. Yes, when in
costume I try to wear everything…right down to the under garments!
