Welcome to my blog! I write about literature and the law.
I’m the mother of three and a civil rights attorney at a public interest organization in the United States. The Misfortune of Knowing is not affiliated with my employer. I discuss the law on this blog, but I don’t provide legal advice here.
If you’re curious about the title of my blog, see Dating Rules for “Ordinary” Heroines (Hat Tip to Jane Austen).

For information on my books:
- Anusha of Prospect Corner (an #ownvoices novel inspired by Anne of Green Gables & co-authored by my twins), see here.
- Amelia Elkins Elkins (a “courtroom drama” retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion) and Two Lovely Berries (a New Adult novel), see here.
A note about reviews: I no longer accept review copies from authors or publishers, but I am interested in learning about emerging authors. So, feel free to say hello. I might not be able to respond to every message, but I will read all of them. I purchased all of the books reviewed on this blog (unless otherwise stated in the post).
