Kara Jorgensen is an anachronistic oddball with a penchant for all things antiquated, morbid, or just plain strange. While in college, she realized she no longer wanted to be Victor Frankenstein but instead wanted to write like Mary Shelley and thus abandoned her future career in science for writing. She melds her passions through her books and received an MFA in Creative and Professional Writing in 2016. When not writing, she can be found hanging out with her dogs watching period dramas or trying to convince her students to cite their sources. Her work has also been featured in Selfish (issue 1) and Literary Orphans (issue 17).

  1. Have you read How to be a Victorian by Ruth Goodman? It’s basically a bible for everything Victorian.

      I actually got it for Christmas. I need to finish it, but it is definitely a lot more helpful than What Austen Ate and Dickens Knew. I would love to find a book on the late Victorians and Edwardians, but most focus on the early of mid Victorian era.

  2. Hi Kara,

    I nominated you for the Daydreamer Award- if you do blogger awards. It’s a fun one!
