Miss Scarlet

The inspiration of The Public Execution of Miss Scarlet book came out of a two-day workshop in 2005. This book is a work of fiction. The company in this story does not exist and it was not modeled after any existing or former company. Much of what is depicted in the book is compilation and amalgamation of actual Standish engagements. While there may be events within the book that actually occurred, many have been enhanced or changed to correspond to the story.
