Joy Dawn King, who also writes Mr. Darcy/Elizabeth stories as Christie Capps, fell in love with Jane Austen's writings in 2012 and discovered the world of fan fiction shortly after. Intrigued by the many possibilities, she began developing her own story for Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet.
At the time she wrote her first novel, "A Father's Sins", she was living high in the Andes Mountains of South America. Joy loved to take an occasional break from the Latin culture and bury herself in reading English literature about her favorite English characters. Joy, and her husband of 37 years, lived next door to their only child, Jennifer, her husband, and twin grandchildren and is a native Oregonian.
In late 2014 the Kings relocated to Oregon where other stories popped into her head. She is typing as fast as she can to keep up.
