Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Why did I decide to write Jane Austen Fan Fiction (JAFF) using a pen name? Primarily, I wanted the freedom to try something new for me in the world of JAFF. In the back of my mind, the desire to write comedy, dark drama, and contemporary was becoming almost overwhelming. I needed a channel to give expression to these stories. They were so unlike my J Dawn King tales that I figured I'd better put them under a different name.


Why am I limiting these stories to 20,000 words? My life has become very busy, leaving me less and less time to read. As an older woman with no children at home who happens to work from home, I find I rarely can start and finish a book in one sitting. Talk about FRUSTRATING!!! How many JAFF readers are parents, students, and/or full-time workers? What is the common issue to them all? A lack of time. With that in mind, I wondered if I could provide a variety of complete stories ranging from 20,000 - 25,000 words for those busy readers. I had to give it a go. Thus, Mr. Darcy's Bad Day was born and the tagline popped into my brain, "TIMELESS ROMANCE FOR THE BUSY READER". Another reason was the challenge of writing a complete story within my self-set restraints. It's much harder than I imagined. I love to embellish details and minor characters. I also enjoy writing mixed points-of-view. With these short stories, I am not allowing myself to do so. Should I give in, I would not meet my purpose in having a book that could be read in about an hour. 


What is in store for Christie Capps? I have a total of four stories planned. The third one is a contemporary (yes, my first) and my final story is set as a sequel to Pride and Prejudice (also a first). My plan is to lump them together with Mr. Darcy's Bad Day and For Pemberley at the end of the year in a boxed set (tentatively entitled, "Oh, Mr. Darcy!". I'm not planning on any more short stories after these four are complete. However, I could change my mind. Or, not.

About the Author

Elinor Dashwood is Christie's favorite female character from Jane Austen's stories. Why? Because the eldest Dashwood sister is compassionate, empathetic, and willingly sacrifices for those she loves. Who could fail to admire her? Elizabeth Bennet's spunk makes her a lady who would be the fun friend to have in school. Anne Eliot's loyalty is worthy of imitation.

Christie's book-boyfriend is Captain Wentworth. In her mind, he writes a far more romantically convincing letter than Mr. Darcy. Henry Tilney and Colonel Brandon are also favorites. Mr. Knightley deserves sainthood for his patience with Emma, and Mr. Darcy's being man enough to change his attitude is worthy of the utmost admiration.
 
For an unmarried woman, Ms. Austen knew how to sketch the character of a man. Do you not agree?
