Happy Casimir Pulaski Day! Fun Fact: Pulaski was the father of the American Cavalry and was almost definitely intersex. Researching Pulaski was a fun part of writing @history @histodons

Today is apparently National "Pretend to Be a Time Traveler Day" in Canada. I'm traveling back 400 years to watch Anne Hutchinson wipe the floor with Puritan Governor John Winthrop during her sedition trial.

Happy 80th Birthday to Billie Jean King. She is DEFINITELY one of the in . Researching and writing the chapter about her was inspiring! I got to relive watching her wipe the floor with Bobby Riggs as a kid. Plus I learned how she has been a leader on and + rights @histodons

#WordWeavers Do films or theatre play a role in your story?

Absolutely. In #PompeiiFire, Drusilla and Suetonius attend a production of Plautus' "Pseudolas." It gave me an opportunity to talk about social mores in ancient Roman society; men and women were not seated together at most entertainments.

11.3 — Who is your favorite antagonist? Why?

Wow. It's hard to pick just one ... but I'd have to go with Delphine LaLaurie. She's an actual historical personage ... and she was even worse in real life than she was in my book! She wants Alcide for her daughter, Pauline, in "Bayou Fire," and is willing to go to any length to get her way.

11.2 — Do your characters play any games?

I had to think about this one ... and the only scene I can think of is in "Bayou Fire," where Alcide Devereaux gambles at cards. There's discussion of another card game in the book, but it's used as part of a ruse.
