Renata McMann . . . is the pen name of someone who likes to rewrite public domain works. She is fond of thinking “What if?” She loves to write because, as a mathematics teacher at a community college, she feels the need to exercise both sides of her brain. Her specialty is Jane Austen Fan Fiction, with particular attention given to creating unique Pride & Prejudice variations. Her other works, written as Teresa McCullough, are in the genres of fantasy and science fiction.
McMann has published five Pride & Prejudice variation short stories, which can be purchased alone or as a collection, both in Kindle and print, in the form of her book: Five Pride and Prejudice Variations: A Collection of Short Stories. In 2014, Renata began collaborating with fantasy author Summer Hanford. Between the two, they have created over twenty additional Pride & Prejudice variations, with more to come.
McMann’s fantasy writing began when she and her mother collaborated on The Enhancer. The second book in the enhancer universe, The First Enhancer, came from wondering how the society in The Enhancer originated. This grew into several stand-alone stories in that universe. In addition to this, McMann (as Teresa McCullough), has several other fantasy and science fiction novels and short stories available.
Summer Hanford . . . knew from a young age that she wanted to be a writer. Summer currently writes Regency Romance, Adventure Romance, Pride and Prejudice variations and Fantasy novels . . . with a touch of romance.
Starting in 2014, Summer was offered the privilege of partnering with fan fiction author Renata McMann on her well-loved Pride and Prejudice variations. Since their partnership began, Hanford and McMann have earned Amazon’s #1 Best Seller badge and #1 New Release badge with several different novels, both in the United States and abroad. More information on their joint work is available at www.renatamcmann.com.
In addition to Pride and Prejudice variations, Summer writes Regency Romance for Scarsdale Publishing, including her Under the Shadow of the Marquess trilogy, several Scarsdale Half Hour Reads and multiple installments in the ongoing Marriage Maker Series. As with all of Summer’s work, her Regency Romance is clean, sweet romance.
Summer is currently writing solo works in Regency Romance and Adventure Romance, partnering with McMann, providing content for, creating and managing websites, and is a fantasy and science fiction faculty member at AllWriters’ Workplace and Workshop, LLC., an international creative writing studio. She lives in Michigan with her husband and compulsory, deliberately spoiled, cats, plus a new puppy (not yet appreciated by the cats!). For more about Summer, visit www.summerhanford.com.
