Author Susan Gee Heino stops by to discuss her latest historical heroine, Julia St. Clement from September's Damsel In Disguise. Learn about the realities of being an actress in Regency-era England and don't miss the excerpt at the end of the post!
I’m really excited to talk about Damsel In Disguise and my fun, disguise-wearing heroine. She’s a spunky, out-of-the-box gal so I was able to explore some humorous plot twists and quirky costumes for her.
Julia St. Clement is an actress in Regency England; 1816 to be precise. And she’s on the run. Three years ago a not-very-nice man named Fitzgelder ruined her life when he destroyed her relationship with Lord Rastmoor, a respectable nobleman. Fitzgelder also ruined her career. Since that time, Julia and her father have lived in hiding, going by assumed names and avoiding London at all costs.
