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. The craftsmanship and detail are amazing, and that is absolutely beautiful, and would fit with any era. Sadly I have seen too many long winding staircases in haaunted house movies to want one for myself, but they are so lovely to look at. Stained glass is at its best when the sun is shining, but I love it any time. Sadly on our recent house hunts, we haven’t seen any houses that have them. Probably because we are looking at newer homes with everything on the same level.

    1. I have not watched enough haunted house movies to not like a good winding staircase. LOL And I agree that sun through stained glass is beautiful! Here’s a little bit more info about the place where those stairs are found: Keith Hall was built in the early 1860s and stands just in “front” of the Keith’s Brewery that Alexander Keith founded. We were only able to enter and look into the lower level rooms of the building during the Doors Open Halifax event, but what we saw was beautiful. The woodworking on the crown moldings and such was just as nice as the stairway. The window has some cracks in it that it sustained back in 1917 during the Halifax Explosion (two ships collided in the Narrows, one was carrying explosives). The home is far enough away from where the blast occurred that it did not sustain any significant damage, just those cracks. I found this fact to be very interesting.
