About the Author...
Rumor has it that Barbara Monajem is descended from English aristocrats. If one keeps to verifiable claims, however, her ancestors include London shopkeepers and hardy Canadian pioneers. As far as personal attributes go, she suffers from an annoying tendency to check and recheck anything and everything, usually for no good reason. Hopefully all this helps to explain her decision to write from the point of view of a compulsive English lady with a lot to learn about how the other ninety-nine percent lived in 1811 or so.
As for qualifications, Barbara is the author of over twenty historical romances and a few mysteries, for which she has won several awards. On the other hand, she has no artistic talent and therefore is really stretching it to write about an artist who draws wickedly good caricatures. But she’s doing it anyway, because he’s irresistible. To her, anyway. Not so much to the aristocratic lady. Or at least not yet.

News and Reviews...
"Barbara Monajem’s Lady Rosamund and the Poison Pen is a delightfully spicy mystery, peppered with sharp wit and memorable characters, especially the titular Lady Rosamund. Rosie is a woman who seems to know her own mind…or does she? Battling her greatest fear, Rosie must discover the true identity of the mysterious caricaturist Corvus, and outsmart the author of the poison pen letters before it’s too late. Indifferent to the tongue-clucking of her peers, Rosie is full of surprises. Fans of historical mystery are in for an entertaining treat."
