My new novel, A Case of First Impression, is now available! It was my NaNoWriMo Project, and I probably never would’ve finished it if I didn’t have NaNoWriMo deadlines to meet. The idea for this modern update to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice came from my twins, who did not want Lydia Bennet to end up with Mr. Wickham. The end result is somewhat dark, which surprised one of my beta readers, but there is a happy ending.
Here’s the description on Amazon:A
A tea shop, a crime, and characters based on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice:
A Case of First Impression — a modern twist on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice – gives George and his accomplice, Mrs. Younge, the alternate endings they deserve. George Wickham’s 21st Century counterpart, George Wickersham, is more corrupt than the original, but then again, who knows what the original is up to when he goes off to “enjoy himself in London or Bath.”
Elyse Barret, an updated version of Elizabeth, narrates this modern tale. She’s the only family member her father trusts to keep an eye on Mrs. Younge’s criminal trial, which involves a modern Mr. Darcy as a key witness.
I hope it’s as interesting and enjoyable to read as it was to write. I’m so excited to share it with all of you (and nervous too!). To find it on Amazon, click here.
