Author of Suit and Suitability
Since becoming an Austenite as a teenager, Kelsey has dreamed of writing a book in ode to Jane Austen. Sense and Sensibility is one of Kelsey’s favorite novels and Elinor Dashwood is her favorite book character, so it’s easy to imagine her ecstasy as she was writing Suit and Suitability. This is her first published historical fiction work; she has also published two YA contemporary novels.
Kelsey lives in Central Texas with her family, where she’s also a copy editor, a martial arts instructor, and an avid student of the Bible.
Author of Bellevere House
Sarah Scheele scribbled incessantly as soon as she could read and write. A heavy background—some might say an overdose—of literature during her childhood set writing into a loop she has yet to escape. That education in classics gave birth to several of her stories, including a rewrite of Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park for this collection. She used to wonder why Edmund and Fanny couldn’t have a better resolution?—and so she decided to give them one. Today she does many things with her time. But then she writes, which is the most important thing to mention in an author’s biography. Sarah lives on a farm in Texas with a ladylike cat and a tomboyish Pomeranian.

Emily Ann Benedict
Author of Perception
Emily has been an admirer of Jane Austen’s writing since the age of twelve, so naturally she jumped at the chance to breathe new life into Jane’s final novel, Persuasion. An administrator by day and writer by night, Emily is the author of the best-selling Father Christmas Series as well as two other mystery novels. When she is not writing, you will probably find her at a coffee shop in California with her husband, discussing movies, history and the indomitable Miss Austen.
