I have a passion for creative investigation--digging deep into the heart and soul of characters, while also engaging them in the complex and often dangerous world in which they have a stake. I have an abiding regard for courage in the face of adversity, which shows in my work.

I seek to be precise, accurate, and intellectually rigorous but also to write with the language of the heart. I want to explore all that makes people what they are as complete but fallible human beings, while testing their mettle in every way possible.

My nonfiction shows the same respect for clarity of thought about matters of substance, complexity, and nuance.

During Jane Austen’s life and beyond, England was beset with constant internal strife—labor protests, political riots, and military mutinies. These came as the result of falling wages–caused by increasing mill automation–high-priced food, and the harsh conditions and poor pay of military life. From the mid-1790s through the end of Austen’s life, a major insurrection would boil up at least once...

Collins Hemingway is finished with Jane Austen and the Navy: Solid book. Lots of details on the naval history of the day. Not just about her two brothers but other major naval matters, more political than military. Several fine essays on her books w/the navy being the entry point but not really the focus.
