I’m the daughter of two Jane Austen addicts, who decided to call me after a character from one of Jane Austen’s novels. So it’s no wonder that I also became a passionate Jane Austen fan.

Elizabeth Aston is a pen name (it's actually my married name). I first wrote under the name Elizabeth Pewsey, and now Attica Books are reissuing those novels as ebooks under my Aston name.

I've also published several books under my own name Elizabeth Edmondson. They're historicals, but set in the 20th century.

The Assyriologist

Why does one become what one has become? Chance? Fate? Now, if there were a parallel universe where I could have an alternative career, I’d be an Assyriologist.

After university, clueless about my future career, and too green to know what I now know, which is that careers are things that happen to you, I went with a couple of friends for vocational guidance. We were set a barrage of ridiculous q... Read more of this blog post »

“One's first love is always perfect until one meets one's second love”
Elizabeth Aston, The Exploits & Adventures of Miss Alethea Darcy

“Authors go on writing books, and so we go on reading them. It is a sad state of affairs.”
Elizabeth Aston, Mr. Darcy's Daughters

“Why did she want to stay in England? Because the history she was interested in had happened here, and buried deep beneath her analytical mind was a tumbled heap of Englishness in all its glory, or kings and queens, of Runnymede and Shakespeare's London, of hansom cabs and Sherlock Holmes and Watson rattling off into the fog with cries of 'The game's afoot,' of civil wars bestrewing the green land with blood, of spinning jennies and spotted pigs and Churchill and his country standing small and alone against the might of Nazi Germany. It was a mystery to her how this benighted land had produced so many great men and women, and ruled a quarter of the world and spread its language and law and democracy across the planet.”
Elizabeth Aston, Writing Jane Austen
