About

I am the mother of two fabulous (most of the time) teenage boys and the wife of one sweet and thoughtful man.

I am somewhat of a grammar nerd…my two youngest sisters tell stories of me correcting their grammar in letters and sending the letters back to them, but I do NOT remember doing that…I am sure they exaggerate. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love to read. ย I was that kid, under the covers with the flashlight, reading until the wee hours of the morning. My heroes when growing up were authors. I loved what they did. The worlds they could paint with words were (and still are) my favourite playgrounds!

I also love to write.

It wasn’t until 2103 that my love of reading and playing with stories and my love of writing crashed into each other. ย What happened to cause this collision? ย I discovered Jane Austen Fan Fiction. ย I was delighted to learn that there were others that continued plots and varied the stories in their imaginations just as I did.

I started by reading, but eventually, I began to argue (in my mind mostly) with the authors about their choices. So, I decided to put some of my ideas down on virtual paper, and after much encouragement from my dear husband, I signed up for two JAFF forums and began sharing my stories there. Now, I am taking it a step further. ย With slightly trembling, anxious fingers, I am creating this blog where you can find my writing–both JAFF and non-JAFF.

Welcome.

  1. I remember staying at your childhood home and telling you the story of the 3 Little Pigs (Melvin, Steve and Dennis) We all got in trouble for keeping your mom and dad awake.

    1. Haha! I don’t remember that particular story — although I wish I did. ๐Ÿ™‚ You did like to tell me stories! Mom was never too happy when we kept her awake. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I got upset with my kids when they kept me up too. Now that it is the grandkids, it doesn’t seem so bad. They do seem to g to bed better then the boys ever did. Maybe it’s because they aren’t with me every night.

          1. I hope you don’t end up with that family curse that makes it so that you can’t sleep for more than 4-5 hours. It stinks. Especially when the ones you love and live with have no problem with staying in bed for 12 hours. And don’t make noise! Do you remember my mom trying to get us up on Saturday mornings by vacuuming her closet right next to my room. Very subtle.

          2. Haha! That’s good! So subtle! ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, I seem to sleep in about 4-5 hour increments — did not realize that was a family curse, however. I used to be such a good sleeper.

  2. I have enjoyed many of your stories! Thank you for sharing them. If you ever want final proofreader help before you publish, please let me know. I’ve been working with several other Austen Authors for the last year and would enjoy working with you. Congratulations on the new stories!
