About the author

L. M. Rainer is perfectly charming and always well behaved. These essays started as a way to pass on her extensive knowledge to her dearest niece, Esmeralda, but the writing rather got away from her and suddenly there were essays a go-go on every possible subject. Think of her as the Auntie Mame you never had, with a touch of Zena the Warrior Princess, Scout, Mary Queen of Scots and Miss Piggy. More information can be found at
