Christina Boyd wears many hats as she is a great reader, an editor at The Quill Ink, a contributor to Austenprose, and a ceramicist. A life member of Jane Austen Society of North America, Christina lives in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest with her dear Mr. B, two busy teenagers, and a retriever named BiBi. Visiting Jane Austen's England was made possible by actor Henry Cavill when she won the Omaze experience to meet him in the spring of 2017 on the London Eye. True story. You can Google it.

“There are a million ways a man can become a Mr. Darcy.” “True.” “But it takes an Elizabeth Bennet to see them.”
Christina Boyd, The Darcy Monologues

“Kiss me, Rose” was all I could manage, and my beautiful girl—well, they say a gentleman does not kiss and tell....”
Christina Boyd, Dangerous to Know: Jane Austen's Rakes & Gentlemen Rogues

“In one section of the Vindication, Wollstonecraft writes that she’s disgusted with how her culture keeps women down. She sees females being most valued by power-hungry men, who encourage them to serve as weak, ignorant, pretty playthings. It’s a perpetuating cycle, because men, Wollstonecraft writes, “have increased that inferiority till women are almost sunk below the standard of rational creatures.” She concludes, “I think the female world oppressed.” We might say that, across this volume’s dazzling stories—and alongside the beyond-compare Austen herself—it’s a belief that must seem eminently rational. Fortunately, then, as now, such a cultural diagnosis precludes neither hope nor joy.”
Christina Boyd, Rational Creatures

Beau North, Longbourn's Songbird

“Your pain is your own until you put it to music, then it belongs to everyone. You'll find it lightens the load.”
Beau North, Longbourn's Songbird

“The Very first moment I beheld him, my heart was irrevocably gone.”
Jane Austen, Love and Friendship

“Life seems but a quick succession of busy nothings.”
Jane Austen, Mansfield Park

“...the more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love.”
Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility
