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.

Rapid change in technology was disrupting society; clashes between the have and have-nots; fights over voting rights; etc. Society was in transition, too, as businesspeople and a growing middle class began to affect culture and politics. A very exciting period in so many ways. And I've always loved the novels of Jane Austen, which took literature out of its infancy and marked the first realistic fiction in English. (Sorry for the delay in answering; somehow your query got lost in my email.) Best to you, Collins(less)

Friends,


Let me provide an end-of-year thanks to all my subscribers. I hope during these very difficult times my thoughts on Jane Austen, the Regency era, and other related issues may have offered a small but welcome diversion from the pandemic and hard times and isolation that a lot of people are experiencing.
