Some of you have noticed ...

that a decade ago all the Jane Austen Pride and Prejudice Variation novels on this website were publishd under a pen-name. You have further noticed that a decade ago there was an "After the Wedding" scene included at the back of each book that the reader could choose to read or not to read. Lastly, you noticed 9 of my novellas were not republished.

All of these things are true and I thank you for being such dedicated and devoted readers to notice.

To make things especially clear, these books have now been republished using my real name and are now considered clean and wholesome reads with no vulgar language. All romantic scenes fade to firelight.

All my love, Emmaline

  • Since childhood,

    I've been captivated by the power of words to transport readers and evoke emotions. Through my writing, I share the joys and challenges of my life's journey, aiming to inspire and uplift readers. My ultimate goal is to remind them of their strength and the importance of having supportive friends and family.

  • Until 2023,

    I primarily wrote Apastiche Fiction, also known as Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice FanFiction, which includes variations, expansions, sequels, and adaptations based on Jane Austen's novel. My first novel was published in 2009, and I attended book signings in January and February 2010, which was a highlight of my life.

  • From 2009-2015

    I wrote and published 17 novels, novellas, and short stories; 5 Novels, 5 Novellas, and 7 Short Stories. ​Currently I have 8 stories published: 4 Novels and 4 Novellas. All 8 are available here on my website and at a variety of other booksellers online.
