Black Arts, Tarts and Gypsy Carts by Erin Johnson

Character Interview with Imogen

1. What’s it like working in the royal bakery?
It’s amazing! Everyday is whirlwind, baking for the royal family’s meals, special events and parties. I have to wash the flour out of my hair every night and my legs ache from standing all day, but it’s my favorite place in the world. I get to make special treats that make people happy and everyday’s a new adventure.

2. What is your favorite part of having magic?
I think I’d enjoy having magic a lot more if I was any good at it! It seems like every spell I try is a disaster. But I must say, practicing with Hank is a big plus.

3. How are you liking life on …

Lady Frances and Mallow: Friends and Colleagues

My sleuth, Lady Frances Ffolkes, employs a maid, probably the most conventional thing she does. And exploring their relationship is the most fun I have in writing my mysteries!

Frances, of course, is a very non-traditional heroine in turn-of-the-century England. Although times were changing, some conventions were set in stone: well-born women didn’t work and could have no occupation except perhaps charitable work. They lived at home until they found a suitable husband—or one was selected for them.

But Lady Frances turns all those conventions on their heads: she lives on her own, campaigns for women’s suffrage, chooses her own romantic partners (even going outside of her class) and sets herself up as …
