From such beginnings, my novel was born. I was shocked when I eventually did an internet search of Pride and Prejudice to realize there were already over 100 sequels. I thought "Why didn't I do this before I started my book? I could have just bought my sister a present!" However, I am so glad I continued with my sequel. I also wanted to get to know Austen's work more deeply and to improve my writing ability. I know painters improve their work by imitating other painters and I thought I would do something similar. I've never had so much fun writing a novel.
