I’m delighted to welcome steampunk author Nikki Woolfolk to my blog. She’s just released The Men of Summerly, a sweet and steamy romance!She’s dropped into the salon to talk about terrariums–a fine way of keeping a piece of the Victorian garden growing even when things aren’t quite as “summerly” outside.
