manner I m astounded Lady MadelineShe balled her fist beneath her book My lord I am the duke s daughter Should I ask for proof of your peerageI never seek for anyone to prove themselves I wait for

Regency and Victorian eras have always been a magnetizing draw for Vanessa Riley Even as she worked to complete her doctorate in Mechanical Engineering she made time for renaissance fairs and any novel or cinematographic work depicting these genteel societies of old Perhaps the attraction arises from the kinship she feels with the period being brought up in the restrictive Southern Bible Belt with its stringent definitions of decent behavior and life expectationsPerhaps the common denominator to this appeal is her own thirty day Christian courtship or even the arranged marriages of her uncles each is emblematic of the nuptials of those earlier timesA technology muse like Dr Vanessa Riley is probably not the immediate choice to write about haute ton English society set in the 1800 s With her most recent published work being Reducing Deformation by Phase Manipulation the common visceral reaction is that Providence has given another mule a voice to tell His story Nevertheless this mule uses her determined spirit and dogmatic tenacity to discover the hidden nuances of a character making him believable her human and both ready to be used of GodVanessa holds a doctorate in mechanical engineering and a masters in industrial engineering and engineering management from Stanford University She also earned BS and MS in mechanical engineering from Penn State University She
