Averil Reisman

Goodreads Author

The United States



Member Since
August 2013

Averil Reisman loves to write steamy American-set historical romances of the Gilded Age and Gay Nineties--the late Victorian period during which America's industrial age aristocracy lived like lords and ladies of England.

A closet feminist, she admires the brave women of this era who fought for equal voting rights, and who often broke the mold to bring about social change and women's equality. Writing about strong women, and the alpha males who love them, is one of her greatest passions . . . besides her loving husband.

She's always been a writer, having graduated

Yesterday, I discovered that the activist group Codepink will be hosting a delegation of 150 people to Cuba...
