Northanger Abbey: The Forgotten Jane Austen?

Most of the time, when people mention Jane Austen, they immediately think of Pride and Prejudice or Sense & Sensibility. True diehards will mention Emma and Persuasion. Mansfield Park occasionally creeps into the discussion. Personally, I enjoyed Northanger Abbey much more than Persuasion and Mansfield Park. But, in my experience, very few people ever bring… more goodness …

Regency Era Fan Fiction

A few months ago, a publisher contacted me about the creation of a Plain Fame Fan Fiction World. Immediately, I said YES. I love fan fiction. Or, rather, I love well-written fan-fiction. For several years, I have been writing Jane Austen Fan Fiction, adapting her stories into an Amish setting. I saw this as an… more goodness …

On November 8th, something wonderful happened. No, I’m not referring to the election in the USA. I think many of us would prefer to forget about that (and I’m writing this blog BEFORE Election Day so draw your own conclusions as to what I mean…). What I’m referring to is the publication of my latest… more goodness …

Someone for Everyone

Mayhaps, she told herself, there is indeed, someone for everyone. After all, who was she to question God’s plan? A long time ago and in a far away galaxy, a young girl, isolated on her own, personal spacecraft, continuously orbits through space without any destination… No, that’s not how I really want to start this… more goodness …

Oh Jane, How Much Do I Love Thee?

Oh Jane, How Much Do I Love Thee?

Apparently a lot since I’m in the process of writing a new Jane Austen adaptation. However, unlike my previous novels that retold Jane Austen’s novels in an Amish setting, I am doing the reverse. That’s right. The reverse. A while back, a publisher contacted me regarding creating a new fan fiction “world” from my very… more goodness …

The Poetic Writing of Jane Austen

The Poetic Writing of Jane Austen

A few months ago, I attended a seminar at Drew University in Madison, Jersey: Austen and Byron: Together Again. While the lecture was interesting and resulting in my immediate purchasing of several Byron books (of which I have only glanced through since then…such is the life of a book-a-holic), the most fascinating aspect of the… more goodness …

Northanger Abby

Northanger Abby

When you think of Jane Austen, usually the first book to come to mind is Pride and Prejudice followed by (in no particular order) Persuasion, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, and Mansfield Park. For some odd reason, Northanger Abby—the first written, the last published—is often overlooked. As I’m wrapping up my adaptation of this clever novel,… more goodness …

Rewriting Northanger Abbey

Rewriting Northanger Abbey

Catherine Morland is a character like few others. First, she is the reaction of Jane Austen. That alone makes her special. However, she is also the first protagonist of the Jane Austen classics. Let’s face it. If you are reading this, you are a romantic. And if you are a romantic, you love the idea… more goodness …

You Are What You Read

You Are What You Read

True Confession: I am a very disloyal reader. I tend to go through spurts, binging on different types of books: biographies, inspiration, women’s fiction, Amish romances, historical romances, Jane Austen Fan Fiction, classics. I am an author’s worst nightmare because I stray from my favorites. After two or three books, I get tired of the… more goodness …
