Bath Time with Beau Brummell by Libi Astaire

Posted by on Jun 22, 2015 in 18th Century England, Historical Tidbits | 4 comments

The idea of the daily bath has had its ups and downs throughout human history, but it got an enthusiastic thumbs-up during England’s Regency era, when Beau Brummell – the period’s authority on all things fashionable – insisted on taking an hour-long soak every day. Bucking a popular theory of the time that perspiration formed a protective cover on the skin that kept diseases from entering the body through the pores – a theory that advised against bathing the entire body too often – the Beau advocated the opposite: rinse away the grime...

The California French by Steve Bartholomew

Posted by on Jun 1, 2015 in 19th Century U.S., Historical Tidbits | 3 comments

One of the oddest and most forgotten episodes in California history was that of the “Ingot Lottery” of France in 1851. As sources for this story I rely mainly on that excellent book, The Madams of San Francisco by Curt Gentry, © 1964 by Curt Gentry. I also draw upon The Annals of San Francisco, by Frank Soule and others, published in 1854. Recently I was web surfing and ran across a genealogy site dedicated to French ancestry in California. The author took great pride in the fact her ancestors were from France and had greatly contributed to...

Truth is Stranger than Fiction by V. R. Christensen

Posted by on May 25, 2015 in Featured Book, Historical Tidbits | 2 comments

My third novel has taken me nearly a decade to write. Not because I’m a terribly slow writer, but because there are a myriad of other obligations competing for my time. I have kids. You know how it is. I’m also a project junkie. Writing isn’t my only full time hobby. In my spare time (what is that?) I restore old houses. The truth is Gods and Monsters was written in a three month flash of emotional fury whilst recuperating from a severe bout of pneumonia. The book was inspired by a personal experience. I’d had a run-in with one of those...
