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:


Much neater desk.

Dear Anthony, Just wanted to tell you – received a thank you note — communication from Officer X because he received the autographed photo and sent me a digital photo of it –- up on display above his desk. His desk is much neater than my own, and                             hope all is well, Janine
