Hi Maria Grazia! Thank you for inviting me to write this guest post for the My Jane Austen Book Club.
Sadly, I am not referring to the romance at the heart of Pride and Prejudice – I have no Mr Darcy in my life, yet! – but to the new challenge I have thrown at Elizabeth and Darcy. Six years ago I had the first of two pituitary tumours and my life has changed dramatically as a result. I have always wanted to write a story using my experiences as inspiration, and In Essentials was the result.
