I considered writing a new edition to expand her role but decided instead on writing a companion to my original. Miss Georgiana Darcy of Pemberley runs parallel, telling the story from Georgiana’s point of view this time. The two novels are complimentary – one book filling in the “off-camera” scenes of the other and the thoughts hidden from view. I trust that together they supply a richer reading experience than either one alone. (less)

I began with what I wanted most for myself: a sequel to Pride and Prejudice that fit my personal vision (The Darcys of Pemberley, now followed by two others). Then an independent story, representing what I thought Jane Austen might have written next (For Myself Alone). And finally, I wanted to give Jane herself romance and a plausible alternate ending to her life. That inspiration became The Persuasion of Miss Jane Austen. (less)

A Poison Pen Letter for Wickham

See the source imageThank you! All your positive feedback on my previous post (Fitzwilliam Darcy: in His Own Words) really energized me. Now I’m off and running on what will hopefully become my next novel! – expanding on the Pride and Prejudice saga to tell the story from Darcy’s point of view, beginning months before the scope of Jane Austen’s original book.





So what was Darcy doing before he turns up at the Meryton b

“Writing novels is not an illness that need be recovered from. It is my work; it is what I do.”
Shannon Winslow, The Persuasion of Miss Jane Austen

“There is absolutely nothing that should tempt you into matrimony - early, or indeed, ever - except love. would it not be preferable to remain unmarried all your life rather than compromise on that principle of singular importance - Elizabeth Darcy”
Shannon Winslow, The Darcys of Pemberley

“Books have been my constant companions, from a tender age until this day - Mary Bennet”

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery. I quit such odious subjects as soon as I can, impatient to restore everybody not greatly in fault themselves to tolerable comfort, and to have done with all the rest.”

Shannon Winslow Trish wrote: "whats coming up next?"
I've got some ideas cooking, Trish, but nothing actually underway yet. I promised myself I wouldn't start writing another book until I finished sorting through my parents' house - a massive undertaking, but I'm just about done! How would you feel about a bit of a time travel story? - a JA fan who gets the chance to travel back to live her life in Regency times. She pictures herself another Lizzy Bennet, but of course things don't go exactly as she imagines. I hope it will be a bridge book to one I wrote some time ago called First of Second Chances. You can read about that one at my website/blog www.shannonwinslow.com. The plan would be to publish the two together. I would also like to put together an anthology about Mr. Collins. Then I have in mind a book about the Gardiners. That will keep me busy for a while!


Patricia whats coming up next?


Shannon Winslow My pleasure, Sophia! I'd be delighted to have you read them and I hope you enjoy them. They are my "darling children" - all different, but loved equally!


Sophia Thanks for accepting my friend request, Shannon!

I'm looking forward to reading your books. Love your posts at AuAu.
