Charlotte's Web
By E. B White

Favorite place to read a book: Curled up on my living room sofa, a cup of tea at my elbow, with a cat on my lap.

The moment I knew I wanted to become an author: About five minutes after I started outlining the plot for my first book, Somewhere in France. It was exciting and terrifying in equal measure.

Hardback, paperback, ebook or audiobook: Paperback, though I read ebooks on holiday. And I love listening to audiobooks in the car.

The last book I read: Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Ayesha At Last: A Novel
By Uzma Jalaluddin

If I wasn’t an author, I’d be a: Grumpy and discontented copy editor

Favorite decade in fashion history: The 1910s. The changes in silhouette that happened over the course of the decade were breathtaking – it must have felt dizzying to women of the time.

Fashion designer I’d like to be stuck in an elevator with: Alexander McQueen

Schiaparelli and the Artists

Historic character I think I’d be best friends with: Eleanor Roosevelt. Assuming I could keep up with her!

White Houses: A Novel
By Amy Bloom

Kate or Meghan's wedding gown: I loved both gowns, but Kate’s is the one I covet.

Thoughts on The Crown: Wonderful acting and lots of fun to watch, and the costumes are divine, but it plays a little too fast and loose with history for me to fully enjoy it. If only I could hit pause on my Nerd Historian brain!

Place I’d most like to travel: New Zealand, although being on a plane that long with my kids would probably finish me off.

My signature drink: A Boulevardier – essentially a Negroni, but with bourbon instead of gin. Especially good once the weather turns cold.

Favorite artist: Hans Holbein the Younger

Number one on my bucket list: One day I want to walk the Camino de Santiago with my sister. (This is probably going to be news to her!)
