More About the Author

Annie Harrison draws some of her literary inspiration from living in a 300-year old house outside Canterbury once owned Jane Austen's brother, Edward Knight. The next-door vicarage provided Miss Austen with the literary setting for Pride and Prejudice. The mansion glimpsed over the estate wall from Annie's writing desk window reportedly imbued the author with her Mansfield Park and Persuasion masterpieces. As a writer this was obviously quite a tough literary act to follow, but Annie decided to give it a go anyway.

In a very non-Jane Austen way, Annie hastily met and married her Mr Darcy on the cusp of 40, after years of desperate, delusional and disastrous dating. She had two children in quick succession and was relieved to finally move on from her previous Bridget Jones existence (pardon the mix of genres). Her experiences lead her to write Finding Mr Right: The Real Woman's Guide to Landing That Man - an inspirational anthology for reluctantly single Elizabeth Bennets and Bridget Joneses everywhere.

Annie's second book, The Oddball English, takes an irreverent romp across the English national character in a sweeping generalization and patronizing stereotyping of the English - some quirks, a dollop of English food, a social mélange of classes and exploits, plus a warble of accents found throughout England.

Annie is typically English and well qualified to comment on English life. She has a stiff upper lip, a sarcastic sense of humor, wishes she could be more patriotic and only eats fish and chips. She enjoys binge drinking, watching Morris dancing and participating in cheese rolling.

The Oddball English is available on Kindle. Excerpts can be read at

Author's note: The book, 'About the English' has not and will not be published either in printed or ebook format. Annie Harrison wishes to confirm that she is not associated with this particular title.
