Lovely 4.5 Star Review from InD’tale Magazine!

Okay, so in August I was still recovering from having moved my family into a new house and completely missed (somehow) the fact that The Secrets of Darcy and Elizabeth got a lovely review and 4.5 Stars from InD’tale Magazine! The reviewer said it was “a must read for any Austen fan!” Squee!

Wonderful Review on Inaugural Page of Jane Austen Variations

The brand new Jane Austen Variations Facebook page chose my novel, The Secrets of Darcy and Elizabeth, for their very first review!  In fact, she said my book inspired the whole endeavor.  I can’t say enough about how honored I am.  I encourage everyone who’s interested in JAFF to check out the page.  I’m sure it will be a great source of information in the future.



Inspiration from Austen Herself — Jane’s Writing Desk!

Hi Everyone.  Sorry for the long hiatus. Summer has been crushingly busy, but it included a wonderful trip to England — where I saw some truly inspirational Jane Austen sights I’ll be sharing here. This first picture is Jane Austen’s writing desk — on display at the British Library (actually the part of the British Museum that deals with documents). Above it is a first edition Pride and Prejudice.  Very exciting!
