I'm a novelist, traveler, wannabe chef, sustainability champion, and Jane Austen fanatic. In real life I work at a university. I have a husband and two cats and a beautiful ocean view from my condo on Vancouver Island, in Canada.
In April 2009 (age 49) I had never read Jane Austen, so I decided to read an old worn Northanger Abbey that was somehow in my library. I was hooked. Within a few weeks I had read them all, and P&P twice, and was reading every P&P inspired book in the local library plus bought P&P&Z. I started searching for more and in July 2009, found JAFF and DWG. I started writing in November 2009, and submitted my first short story about a year after I first read P&P.
I have two stories here at DWG, my very first ones, and hope to post my next one here, too. It's called "Letter from Ramsgate," and starts with Elizabeth meeting and becoming friends with Georgiana at Ramsgate.
In November 2013, I had my first novel published by Meryton Press. It's called "Alias Thomas Bennet" and is for mature readers due to sexual content, violence, and sexual violence (not explicit, and not involving Elizabeth Bennet). The story is about a secret Mr. Bennet has that involves Mr. Darcy, but Elizabeth knows nothing about it, in spite of the fact that it affects her future.
The Maid in the Meadow Written by Suze. Long ago before the European invaders came, a young woman from a society of hunter-gatherers was out walking near her village. She saw two unknown men on horseback approaching. When they stopped to observe the prospect, she listened in on their conversation, and felt a strong attraction to the taller man. ~P&P~ Last update 05/20/2010 (Fant)
