Author Interview: Celia Bell (The Disenchantment)

Marie-Catherine Le Jumel de Barneville, Baroness d’Aulnoy, aka Countess d’Aulnoy, aka Madame d’Aulnoy, was a French author who invented the term “fairy tales”. She also was one of many real-life figures who inspired Celia Bell to write her historical fiction novel, THE DISENCHANTMENT.

Celia joins us to talk about her book, which is a fictional story about a passionate love affair between two noblewomen who wish to free themselves from their repressive society, whatever the cost. There’s also murder in it, as well as Vulgar History fav La Voisin and, The Affair of the Poisons!
