Folks, in case you were unawares, the HNS Conference sponsored a costume contest Saturday night. Given the level of talent – and commitment!! – of the people who write historical fiction, we had some great characters make an appearance!

Here’s a picture of two of our author friends, Sharon Larsen (left) and Julie Caton.

Madeleine de Roybon D'Allone, 1646 - 1718, first female property owner in Canada,  survivor of Indian captivity, and Annie Noleen, age 70, who taught Madeleine how to shoot, cook, and run a trading post. These characters are based on Julie Caton's MS, White Heart.

Annie is a fur-trader merchant smoking a pipe. Julie is the 17th century woman Madeleine, who is dressed in deerskin, adorned in wampum and carries a paddle. 

I hope Annie and Julie know just how much the HNS Conference attendees appreciated their sense of fun and history. We loved it!!!!

And peeps, just so you know, next conference I won’t dress up. I’m going to find a couple of hot-looking guys and dress them up as Vikings. Like this pic below:

Great! Now I have a goal! SIGH
