Although there were only six completed novels, Jane Austen left an enormous legacy when she died on July 18, 1817, at the age of only 41. The Joy of Jane brings together some of today’s leading writers and authorities on Jane Austen to offer their thoughts on her endearing appeal. They include:

Maggie Lane • Deirdre Le Faye • Susannah Fullerton • Ruth Williamson • Carrie Bebris • Emily Brand • Penelope Friday • Amy Patterson • Nigel Starck • Margaret Sullivan • Kim Wilson

My essay, "Austen's Legacy to Novelists," discusses the lessons all writers can learn from Jane. It's a great honor to have my work appear in a collection with that of so many well-respected Austen experts and writers.

A collection of never-before-published stories inspired by Jane Austen—her novels, her life, her wit, her world. Regency or contemporary, romantic or fantastical, each tale reaffirms the incomparable influence of one of history's most cherished authors. Stories by: Pamela Aidan • Stephanie Barron • Carrie Bebris • Jo Beverley • Diana Birchall • Frank Delaney & Diane Meier • Monica Fairview • Syrie James • Janet Mullany • Jane Odiwe • Beth Pattillo • Alexandra Potter • Laurie Viera Rigler • Myretta Robens • Jane Rubino and Caitlen Rubino-Bradway • Maya Slater • Margaret C. Sullivan • Adriana Trigiani • Lauren Willig • and more.

My short story is "The Chase," an Age of Sail adventure tale featuring Jane Austen's brother Francis William Austen (who eventually rose to the Royal Navy's highest position, Admiral of the Fleet) as the daring 26-year-old commander of the HMS Petterel sloop. It depicts the true events of the March 1800 action off Marseilles that earned him promotion to post-captain. I think there's more than a little of Francis Austen in Captain Wentworth!

A malevolent pool. A diabolical cult. A horrific plan. . . . The fate of all Faerûn lies with four reluctant heroes.

Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor is set in the imaginary land of the Forgotten Realms®. Four strangers find themselves suddenly thrown together and charged with the task of stopping an evil sorceress and her dragon general from taking over the ruined city of Myth Drannor. The fallen capital, once home to a noble race of elves, still contains powerful secrets and magic that cannot fall into the wrong hands. The heroes—a warrior, a spellcaster, a holy knight, and a rogue—must set aside their differences as they battle monsters, uncover ancient mysteries, and seek aid from the city's ghostly guardians in their quest to save the Realms from destruction.
