Fidelis Morgan

Fidelis Morgan is an English actor, director, and writer. Morgan has a strong interest in Restoration era theater, which is reflected in her historical mysteries in the Countess Ashby de la Zouche series published by Felony & Mayhem. In 1981 Morgan published the remarkable The Female Wits, which was followed by Female Playwrights of the Restoration, books that rediscovered and brought to public attention the work of forgotten female playwrights of the Restoration period, and included both biographical details on the women, and the full texts of their plays. The character of the Countess Ashby de la Zouche was partly inspired by the life of Delarivier Manley, a 17th century playwright and pamphleteer whose biography (A Woman of No Character) Morgan wrote.
