Penny For Your Secrets - Behind-the-Scenes - Night-Clubs - October 31, 2019

London was abuzz with night-clubs in the late teens and twenties. Some of these catered only to the wealthy and elite, like the glamorous Embassy Club—with its violet and jade-green décor, walls ranged with looking glasses, and high-subscription fees. While others flouted the strict liquor licensing laws, serving libations late into the night to the music of its American jazz bands. These clubs also often featured exhibitions of ballroom and new novelty dances, some performed by duo... Click Here To Read More >>

Penny For Your Secrets - Behind-the-Scenes - Drugs and Legislation - October 17, 2019

In 1919, London had an opium and cocaine problem, even among the elite.

Penny For Your Secrets - Behind-the-Scenes - The Duchess of Marlborough - October 10, 2019

One of the major inciting incidents of the story and several of the characters involved were inspired by an anecdote about the 9th Duke of Marlborough and his second wife, Gladys Deacon. Marlborough had first been wed to the American heiress, Consuelo Vanderbilt. The marriage was notoriously unhappy, and after they divorced, Marlborough wed his mistress, Gladys Deacon.

Penny For Your Secrets - Behind-the-Scenes - Fashion - October 3, 2019

1919 was very much a transition year in fashion, away from the stark garments of the war years and into the bobbed hair and familiar straight silhouettes of the 1920s. September 1919 was also quite warm in southern England. At least until the sudden cold snap which occurred later in the month.     ... Click Here To Read More >>

Penny For Your Secrets - Behind-the-Scenes - The Zebrina - September 26, 2019

In anticipation of the release of PENNY FOR YOUR SECRETS, Verity Kent Book 3, I’ll be sharing a number of behind-the-scenes types of posts, sharing the history and inspiration behind the book. Today I kick them off with a doozy. The disappearance of the crew of the Zebrina is one of the great unsolved mysteries of the First World War.
