I am a lifelong historian and former museum and historic house curator. My undergraduate and post-graduate studies focused on English social and cultural history with a concentration on the period of the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries. Truth be told, my choice of college curriculum was heavily influenced by all the novels by Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer which I began to devour as a young teen. I still periodically treat myself to re-reading novels by both authors. They have never lost their magic for me.
My days as a curator are far behind me. I now manage testing of educational software for an international publishing company. But my delight in the study of history continues, and I persevere in my research into life in Regency England. Reading of modern Regency novels is intermingled with my history studies. However, I am sometimes irritated by the blatant historical inaccuracies in those novels. The Regency Redingote is my venue to attempt to set the record straight and perhaps to provide Regency authors with ideas for future novels. I like to think that Georgette Heyer would appreciate my efforts. I hope you will, as well.
