About the book :
A story of crushes, corsets, and conspiracy
Libby Kelting had always felt herself born out of time. No wonder the historical romance-reading, Jane Austen-adaptation-watching, all-around history nerd jumped at the chance to intern at Camden Harbor, Maine’s Oldest Living History Museum. But at Camden Harbor Libby’s just plain out of place, no matter how cute she looks in a corset. Her cat-loving coworker wants her dead, the too-smart-for-his-own-good local reporter keeps pushing her buttons, her gorgeous sailor may be more shipwreck than dreamboat — plus Camden Harbor’s haunted. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, Libby learns that boys, like ghosts, aren’t always what they seem.
About the author :
Stephanie Kate Strohm is the author of Pilgrims Don’t Wear Pink and the upcoming Confederates Don’t Wear Couture. She grew up on the Connecticut coast, where a steady diet of Little House on the Prairie turned her into a history nerd at an early age. She spent much of her childhood dressing up in bonnets. While attending Middlebury College in Vermont, she blossomed into a full-fledged Civil War buff and was voted Winter Carnival Queen. After graduating with a joint major in theater and history, she acted her way around the country, performing in more than 25 states, primarily in shows where she got to wear corsets.
Currently she lives in New York City, where her closet is almost big enough to hold all of her shoes. When she’s not writing, she loves baking, shopping, cuddling her dog Lorelei, and dragging her boyfriend to chick flicks.

1.) I`m glad you accept this interview .Tell us something about yourself.
I have always been interested in history, even when I was a little girl. I grew up to study it in college, and now, I still love learning more about history – just for fun!
2.) How did the idea for , Pilgrims don`t wear pink ‘ ?
One summer, I worked at a living history museum – just like Libby! And there was a rumor that the museum was haunted. The rest of the book is fiction, but the idea came from something that really happened to me.

Libby is the character that I am the most like – we are both short blond girls who love fashion and history. But Garrett has influenced me a lot – since writing him, I read more comic books and watch more science fiction!
