Trix has always longed for an Austen-esque ending to Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. When not indulging in rewriting fictional history, she cares for her two children and tends to avoid housekeeping by going ice skating – or on dates with her husband (when they can find babysitting!). She holds degrees in journalism and international relations from Sydney University and Macquarie University, and worked for Australian Associated Press before the kids made her a better offer. The Courtship of Jo March is her first novel.

“The more important factors are a man’s perseverance, his ability to innovate and think of new ideas, to be willing to adapt to changing conditions, to push almost tirelessly at a task or several at a time, during the difficult seasons as well as the prosperous. Certainly a man may be all these on his own, and succeed, wife or no – but to have a wife who possessed these qualities, who could bring out in her husband such steadiness and strength of character by her example and unyielding affection… The worth of such a wife is immeasurable. - James Laurence to his grandson, Laurie”
Trix Wilkins, The Courtship of Jo March: a variation of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women

“You speak as though they cannot be trusted with freedom to build a future for themselves, given the opportunity. Certainly humanity as a whole shares a collective guilt for incompetency in crafting a decent future for ourselves – more often than not, we seem eager to destroy others for our own selfish gain. If you truly care for their prospects once freed, then raise a voice and a hand towards that cause! But do not condemn those who work towards the step that must be accomplished first. Liberty first must be achieved, before anything else can have any meaning. - Jo March to Kate Vaughn, on the abolition of slavery”
Trix Wilkins, The Courtship of Jo March: a variation of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women

“For that is what you are, that is who you are – you are an author. You cannot cease to write any more than you can cease to breathe...This difficult season will pass – your eyes and mind will inevitably be opened once more to the wealth of ideas all around you...And even if the ideas around you fall short of what you seek – even if, as you say, you have not the heart to write… perhaps it is your heart you ought to write of. - Laurie to Jo, on writing”

“You may not be at ease among elegant society, but you are at ease with everyone else - and among those in society worth befriending, that is a gift highly prized. Believe me Jo, when I say that the elegant woman you suppose fitting for me wouldn’t satisfy me. But you – my darling, brilliant, stubborn, passionate girl – you would. - Laurie to Jo”
