More About the Author

Jennifer worked in the traditional publishing industry for twelve years as a proofreader, copy editor, and freelance writer. In 2010, she accepted the challenge to self-publish her first novel Charlotte Collins: A Continuation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Upon discovering the possibilities of the expanding ebook market, she created Whiteley Press, LLC, an independent publishing house.

Jennifer also writes thrillers under the pseudo-pseudonym J. W. Becton (http://www.jwbecton.com). Absolute Liability, the first in the six-book Southern Fraud Thriller Series, spent eight weeks on the Amazon Kindle Best Sellers list and three nonconsecutive weeks on the Indie Reader Best Sellers list. Death Benefits, At Fault, and Moral Hazard are available now!

The first e-book by J. Becton that I read was Absolute Liability (A Southern Fraud Thriller), a contemporary mystery, Book 1 in a planned series, with Book 2, DEATH BENEFITS, most likely to be available in Jan 2012. Since I enjoyed that mystery, I went looking for more books by Becton and was delighted to find this. It's a double delight for me as a longtime PRIDE AND PREJUDICE fan and now as a fan of Becton's writing.

There are so many books written as sequels to, continuations of, or variations on P&P that it boggles the mind. Why mess with the almost perfect real thing written by Jane Austen? Her story developed perfectly, ended perfectly and didn't cry out, in my mind, for any sequels or variations on its theme. But I ordered Becton's PERSONAGES out of curiosity and because her stories focus on secondary characters of P&P, not on Elizabeth and Darcy. I don't usually like anybody messing around with Austen's famous couple.

This, BTW, is the collection of Charlotte Collins: A Continuation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Maria Lucas: A Short Story in the Personages of Pride & Prejudice Collection, and Caroline Bingley: A Continuation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, all of which are available separately. So this is quite the bargain at $4.99 for all three.

Great bargain -- 3 stories for $5.99! Also, one of the better Pride & Prejudice sequels! I liked Charlotte Collins' story line and she was more developed as a character here.

I've read some really awful continuations of Jane Austen - this isn't one of them. I loved the story of Charlotte Collins, she was one of my favorite characters in P&P because she was practical. For the day, and even in my own life, I realize that practical has a place. It has to be at least considered, even in love. For instance, I probably couldn't marry a struggling artist because I'm terrified of poverty. I identify with Charlotte in that way, and face it, she was pretty much on the shelf.

This is a lovely, warm continuation of her story - and little sis Maria's entertwined, which probably has been done before but I haven't run across them. A very good read.

It includes also the story of Caroline Bingley which is a bit harder to get into because I just didn't like her. Who did? But Jennifer Becton has surprises there for you as well as you begin to understand Caroline's upbringing and family background. She grew up, and that probably explains it all. Although there are many who grow older without seeming to attain wisdom with it, this Caroline wasn't one of them.

It was nice to have all of these books in one collection. I particularly liked the Caroline Bingley story. Since I (along with most of the reading public) thoroughly dislike Caroline, it was interesting to read something from her point of view. I did have to stop and realize how really young Caroline was. The other books were equally interesting with well developed characters.
The writing was good--okay, not as good as Jane Austin's, but pretty good, especially when compared to other Austin derivative novels.
