Nancy Lawrence … first fell in love with the English Regency era while reading Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. She’s been researching and writing about the era ever since.
In fact, Jane Austen’s novels inspired her to write stories of her own. To her delight, a New York publisher purchased the first Regency romance she wrote. Over the years, her publisher bought six full-length Regency romance novels and four novellas.
In 2017 her novel Mary and the Captain, a Pride and Prejudice Continuation was published. She found the whole experience of crafting a story around beloved Austen characters such a joy, she immediately began working on a second P&P book, which will be published in the summer of 2018.
Nancy has plans in the works for additional Austen-inspired novels, saying, “I simply enjoy writing about a time and place where all the men are gentlemen, all the women are ladies, and there’s always a fancy dress ball to attend. And I deeply appreciate the readers who join me in my world of Regency romance.”
