Thank you for reading.

This is a fictional story with fictional characters—the story/content/text have been copyrighted (2016). During the project, I revised the story and expanded it into a short one act play. Many thanks to all in the WordPress community for their support via likes and follows, and to poet Brian Walker for his kind words & re-blog. And thanks to my friends Raquelle and Maria and to the sole unknown/kindred spirit who also followed the story by email from Australia (I think). Thank you all!  For more of writing on Jane Austen or my other literary and non-literary thoughts please visit:


The Reluctant Janeite

Two strangers. Six Jane Austen novels. Copyright registered (2016). Thank you for reading. This project is now over, and I have adapted the story into a one (1) act play.  For my current project/more of my writing on Jane Austen, and many other subjects, please visit my sister site: Shalden and Neatham (link below).  Thank you!
