Leenie Brown fell in love with Jane Austen's works when she first read Sense and Sensibility followed immediately by Pride and Prejudice in her early teens. As the second of five daughters and an avid reader, she has always loved to see where her imagination takes her and to play with and write about the characters she meets along the way. In 2013, these two loves collided when she stumbled upon the world of Jane Austen Fan Fiction. A year later, in 2014, she began writing her own Austen-inspired stories and began publishing them in 2015. Leenie lives in Nova Scotia, Canada with her two teenage boys and her very own Mr. Brown (a wonderful mix of all the best of Darcy, Bingley and Edmund with healthy dose of the teasing Mr. Tillney and just a dash of the scolding Mr. Knightley).

  1. How lovely and serene that looks. The furniture from that period is so lovely to look at, but I think I prefer to sit in modern, overstuffed furniture comfort. If it’s just looking or a rocking chair and escritoire, give me these two, please! These pictures always go so well with the writing.

    1. I love having objects from that period or close to that period to look at when thinking about my stories. This room is on the main level, across the corridor from the study and at the foot of the stairs at this country “summer” home but the way this chair is tucked in that corner just seemed to say it could be in an upper-level room at the Gardiners. I can just see someone sitting in that chair, perhaps with a book, watching over someone who is unwell.

  2. Uh-oh. It looks like we are still in melancholy times and Lydia is not totally out of danger yet. I hope someone was able to convince Mr. Bennet about how unwise it would be to move Lydia while she is in this condition. (Sorry, I still want to smack him after his last outburst.).
