Meet my friend, Sandra Beck, of Coach Talk Radio.

You’ll find the Writer’s Series on Coach Talk Radio.

The interesting thing about this series is that Sandra Beck simply asked me to co-host a few discussions with her about writing. But then, she let me invite several writing friends and we kept adding them and adding them… and then…kept recording. We’ve had a great time and hope you will not only enjoy this series, but that you’ll also learn a lot from a lot of great writers to help your career or simply enjoy learning more about the writers you love.

I’ll add the individual recordings and more helpful handouts over the next few months to my website.

Can’t afford a writing conference yet, learn from home. Then decide if you want to take if deeper. #FreeEducation #AmWriting

Inspiration Snowflake Tiara Costuming

Gal in pink, Calista's inspiration.

I love research and I love imagining wearing clothing like this while living back in time. That’s half the fun of writing historicals like The Debutante Queen 😉 Isn’t that why we read them too?

Some of the photos I found that inspired the costuming ideas for Calista in Snowflake Tiara: The Debutante Queen.

Researching online, museums, in Helena (MT), and in the Montana Room of the Missoula Public Library brought me such beautiful ideas. Calista is physically modeled after the 2nd photo with the Victorian gal seated in the pink evening gown. She popped off the page to me and said, “I’m Calista. I’m your heroine.” 😉

Look how we had the cover dress designed for her and see the era in it? Of course, it’s green for the season.

And here’s the walking suit idea I used for Calista when she met Albert in downtown Helena 🙂
