indeed for friendly meetings. At Christmas every
body invites their friends about them, and people think little of
even the worst weather. I was snowed up at a friend’s house once

“On one side was a table occupied by some chattering girls, cutting up silk and gold paper; and on the other were trestles and trays, bending under the weight of brawn and cold pies, where riotous boys were holding high revel; the whole completed by a roaring Christmas fire, which seemed determined to
be heard in spite of the noise of
the others.” ~Persuasion

Sheena Austin is the author of Returning to Mr. Darcy, Alexandria, Journey of the Heart, and Disillusionments of the Heart. A lover of all romance, fantasy, cat whisperer, and Kermit obsessed, the author
currently lives in Virginia with her boyfriend
and two cats. She is a Special Education teacher and aspires to win
the lottery one day and to have a lifetime of pizza and cheez-its so
she would no longer have to cook or do the dishes ever again.
USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and New York Times bestselling author Margo Bond Collins is a former college English professor who, tired of explaining the difference between "hanged" and "hung," turned to writing romance novels instead. (Sometimes her heroines kill monsters, too.)
She also writes under the alter ego of Ivy Hearne.
I fell in love with Pride & Prejudice when I read it in high school. Something about that time - the courtly manners of society, the clothing, and so many other things. Don't get me a wrong, I'm a modern girl and wouldn't last a day without my modern conveniences, but I can still fantasize about that time period.
My husband is my inspiration for Mr. Darcy & Colonel Fitzwilliam (when the good colonel appears in one of my books). My husband has the manners of Darcy but has been a military man like the colonel - so I got both in one man.
Sophie, whether with Kernstock or
pen name, is from the land of thousands of lakes, home of Santa
Claus, and technology giant Nokia, also known as Finland. At age 24
she was bitten by the publishing bug in her native tongue. The bug
bit so fiercly that she made her mission to publish all her future
stories to wider audience just year after. That she did, and now at
25 her first book written in English is in preorder.
rased with finnish sisu, and beaten in shape with sauna birch
leaf brooms, Sophie writes Fantasy and Horror. No genre will be safe
from her vigilant and witty writing style though. She will be
providing all kinds of stories from short and sweet to long and
gritty. None with romantic sub plot though. She focuses on platonic
friendships, epic battles beyond tonsil fencing, and the endless
ideas leading to world beyond imagination.
Soon she'll also add Sci-Fi/Dystopian into her fresh list of books and invites in new pen name to the
Sophiesphere circle of things.
Deborah E. Pearson found her love of Jane Austen's work when she was 15 by watching the 1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice by Andrew Davies, Over the following years she not only read Miss Austen's books multiple times but also read several fan fiction books, which led her to
begin writing her own
Jane Austen Fan Fiction in 2010 as she wished to have a Darcy that
fitted the way she saw him.

Books have always been her passion. She started reading at an early age and progressed to full-length books by age nine. The first supernatural book series she read was Dark Shadows, and it sparked her interest in all things paranormal, with a spicy touch of romance mixed in for good measure. She also started writing poetry in grade school and continues to do so today.
Being an avid reader, the consummate daydreamer and an incurable romantic with a Cinderella complex, she started creating her own characters and story lines because she realized she had her own stories to tell.
Besides reading and writing, she also enjoys photography, travel, music, and great movies.

available for public appearances at schools and conferences.
A librarian and researcher by day, Claire
