About the book

This is a dictionary of slang from the Roaring Twenties, also called the Jazz Age. I collected these terms while researching my various fictional stories set in the 1920s.The book is intended for entertainment purposes. It is also peppered with history and trivia about the era. You might use it in preparing for a 1920s costume party, or for a gathering to watch a favorite movie or TV show set in the Roaring Twenties. Or use it for the simple personal fun of speaking flapper!You’re the cat’s pajamas!Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene

A recent review for Thistledown

Callaway, PhD, CCA 5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely place to visit!  January 11, 2020

Lighthearted fun for Midsummer or Any time of year. This is probably the most imaginative, most whimsical story I’ve read in years. The author did a superb job of presenting the “tale of faeries” in a way that appeals to both adults and children.

Our children are always smarter than we realize, but still I liked that there was a recap when the story reached a rather complicated part. That was helpful when I read it to children. Ms. Geneviene painted a bright, beautiful world that I enjoyed visiting. Can the faeries of Thistledown save their world of color and wonder? Read this uplifting story to find out. What a lovely place to visit!

About Teagan Geneviene

Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene lives in a “high desert” town in the Southwest of the USA.

Teagan had always devoured fantasy novels of every type. Then one day there was no new book readily at hand for reading — so she decided to write one. And she hasn’t stopped writing since.

Her work is colored by her experiences from living in the southern states and the southwest. Teagan most often writes in the fantasy genre, but she also writes cozy mysteries. Whether it’s a 1920s mystery, a steampunk adventure, or urban fantasy, her stories have a strong element of whimsy. There are no *extremes* in violence, sex, or profanity.

Her blog “Teagan’s Books” contains serial stories written according to “things” from viewers.

Major influences include Agatha Christie, Terry Brooks, David Eddings, Robert Jordan, and Charlaine Harris

  1. Now that absolutely sounds like a fun book – I like such reads – I once thought of treating myself to DARE (Dictionary of Regional English) – imagine the fun leafing through those volumes!

  4. I enjoy reading Teagan’s comments for the expressions alone. I also think it is brilliant the way that she incorporates others’ suggestions in some of her books.
