About The Author

A lifelong fan of Jane Austen, Rebecca Ann Collins first read "Pride and Prejudice" when she was twelve years old. She fell in love with the characters and devoted many hours of reading to discovering more about the author and the period in which she lived.

With the benefit of an excellent English teacher and a well stocked library, she gathered a wealth of information and studied all the works of her favourite author. Later, she went on to specialize in the history and Literaure of the 19th century- a most dynamic and interesting era, which saw amazing social and political changes in Europe. It was also a time in which many women writers were published- Jane Austen, the Brontes, George Eliot- writing fascinating tales which became classics of 19th century English literature.

 

The study and research Ms Collins undertook became the basis of her books

about the Pemberley families in which she sought to explore the lives of

the characters she " borrowed" from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice" -

as they continued on their various ways, joined by several new characters

of the next generation. The project has been her chief obsession since

1996 and has given her what she calls "the happiest decade of my life".

The popularity of the Pemberley Chronicles Series and the many

messages she receives from readers who love the characters

and their stories is her chief reward.

 

With her love of reading, music art and gardening Rebecca Ann claims

that she is quite comfortable with the values and world view of Jane

Austen and writes easily and credibly within the period. Although she

enjoys the convenience of modern life, she feels great empathy with the

characters she portrays and the ideas and causes that inspire them.
