Today’s featured Beau Monde author is Suzan Lauder!
A love for Jane Austen’s novels and Regency and Austenesque romance novels inspired Suzan Lauder to write her own variations, which led her to a passion for Regency era history and costuming, as well as social media book marketing. She cherishes the many friends she’s made as a result of these interests: readers, authors, historians, costumers, milliners, and more!
Suzan Lauder is the pen name of a published author and member of JASNA, VIRA, and RWA (PAN and Beau Monde chapters). In “real life,” she’s also a registered professional engineer, though not under her pen name! She enjoys independent travel, design, Pilates, yoga, cycling, sustainability, upcycling, architecture, beta editing, and blogging. Most of the time, a Vancouver Island penthouse loft condominium with a view of the Salish Sea is home. For a few months each winter, Mr. Suze and their two rescue cats accompany her to their tiny Spanish colonial casita in Centro Historico of an industrial city in Mexico.
Lauder’s second published novel, LETTER FROM RAMSGATE, was released on October 14, 2016, and comes on the heels of her successful 34-post upcycled costuming blog series, the Thrift Shop Regency Costume Experiment. In her latest blogging venture, Learning from My Experiences, Lauder shares writing tips gained from errors discovered while editing LETTER FROM RAMSGATE in hopes of easing life for other Regency authors. Suzan’s first novel, ALIAS THOMAS BENNET, is an Austen-inspired Regency romance with a mystery twist. She also contributed a short modern romance, DELIVERY BOY, to the holiday anthology THEN COMES WINTER, which was listed on 2015 top book lists by three influential book bloggers. All Lauder’s published fiction is based on Pride and Prejudice and is available from Meryton Press.
