We all know how my feet were placed upon the path of Jane Austen fandom. Or if you do not yet know, you can read all the intricate details on the various pages of my website. My personal opinion is that is does not matter how or when one came to discover the world of Austen. Whether it was forced reading of Pride and Prejudice in some English lit class way back in high school, or the recent discovery of Lost in Austen, the point is that you entered a world of beautiful literature, romance, and history (among so much more). Perhaps you take your Austen very seriously; are one of the purists or Janeites, to use a common term. Maybe you aren’t all that severe; you are content to watch the various adaptations because you just love a good period drama or happy romance or light-hearted comedy. Again, just my opinion, but I do not think it matters because even a slice of Austen is better than none!So since you know my story, I want to hear yours. Share with me how you discovered Austen and what her stories mean to you. Don’t be shy! A signed book is at stake!!
