About the author

Sarah Lorraine


Sarah discovered her dual passion for history and costume right around the age of twelve. Dragged kicking and screaming to her first Renaissance Faire at Black Point, she was convinced she was going to hate it, but to her surprise, she fell head over heels in love with the world of reenactment and dress up immediately. Her undergraduate degree is in Clothing & Textile Design, and she has a Master's in Art History and Visual Culture. When she’s not hauling crap to SCA events and ren faires, Sarah enjoys reading true crime books, writing fiction, and sewing historical clothing from the Middle Ages through the 20th-century. One of these days, she might even start updating her old costuming blog again.

    Great actor – but everything about that horrible coat they dreamed up for him to wear in War & Peace sticks in my craw! (Though, miraculously, the jewelled neck badge they put with it is perfectly appropriate – the Order of St Anne.)

    I adore S.R. and his melancholy, monkish face. He needs to make more historicals; he’s always looked a bit out of time.
