Steampunk Booksigning Garden Party

Steampunk authors Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris joined us in the gardens of The Rosemary House for a book signing and authors meet and greet. Their series, A Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences follows the exploits of Britain's Secret Agents Books and Braun. The novels include Phoenix Rising, The Janus Affair, Dawn's Early Light, and The Diamond Conspiracy.

Our guests gathered in the gardens to meet the authors. Pip, short for Philippa, is originally from New Zealand and has a most delightful accent. She is a fantasy writer and podcaster. Her husband and coauthor, Tee, is also a coauthor of Podcasting for Dummies.

        Don't you just love all of the creative costuming?
A special thank you to Pip and Tee for joining us. Their answer to the question 'What is Steampunk?' is defined on their website as: Steampunk is modern technology—iPads, computers, robotics, air travel—powered by steam and set in the 1800’s.
