I have been making up stories and turning them into books for a while now. For one particularly saucy bit, I needed detailed information on women’s underwear in the eighteenth century.
Working the Google algorithm, I found: “For the details of eighteenth century life, the memoir of Giacomo Casanova cannot be beaten.” I ordered the first of six volumes. You can guess what happened. Just like Lizzy Hillman, the heroine of Conjuring Casanova, I was hooked.
I will share more with you about this journey in my blog.
