Ms. Carriger writes to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in Higher Learning. Ms. Carriger then traveled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She now resides in the Colonies, surrounded by fantastic shoes, where she insists on tea imported directly from London. She is fond of teeny tiny hats and tropical fruit.
She specializes in comedies of manners set in Victorian London full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea drinking.
This is her backup journal (it shadows her main one on blogspot). It chronicles her forays as a writer, as well as addressing outside interests in fashion, art, archaeology, and science. She attempts to post at least three times a week, but may not when traveling foreign climes in hot pursuit of more Higher Learning and tropical fruit. She is now tired of referring to herself in the third person.
