Intrigue At Longbourn: Elizabeth Bennet's Secret Investigation & Mr Bennet's Audacious Plan

…Imagine how it was before Netherfield is let.

‘Intrigue At Longbourn’ is probably the most authentic ‘Pride & Prejudice’ derivative you will ever read.

Elizabeth Bennet enjoys a lively six months before Netherfield Park is let at last. She is appalled to learn that a pregnant teenage kitchen maid, Alice, was dismissed from Longbourn House eight or nine years earlier with no thought for her welfare or that of her unborn child.

Unable to involve her family on the occasion, she approaches the recently arrived, handsome, young rector of Longbourn parish, Mr Wilde, and he agrees to assist her in secret. Their apparently clandestine association is noticed and misinterpreted by some.

Meanwhile, to secure the family’s future, Mr Bennet embarks on a complicated, high-risk scheme which is ultimately in danger of spiralling out of control.

Holidays provide welcome diversions and the social scene is enhanced by a young scientist named Julius Fairweather.

Nevertheless, father’s and daughter’s separate manoeuvres inevitably clash, stoked up by a jealous mischief-maker, as the summer races inexorably towards Michaelmas of 1797 when a young man of large fortune named Bingley first enters the neighbourhood.

…Become better acquainted with the characters in Jane Austen’s magnificent ‘Pride & Prejudice’ and prepare yourself for the sequel, ‘Menace At Pemberley’…

…Witness the first encounters between Elizabeth and Darcy…

…Read the first chapter of ‘Menace At Pemberley’ which begins immediately after Elizabeth and Darcy marry and continues with a large Christmas family gathering at Pemberley as foretold in ‘Pride & Prejudice’…

Written in a classic, easy-to-read, literary style, ‘Intrigue At Longbourn’ is a well-researched account of life in the late eighteenth century for the landed gentry and others and is a tribute to literary icon Jane Austen.

Under Blue Cloud Skies: The Sequel to Coming to Her Senses

Coming to Her Senses: A Coming-of-Age Novel

The summer of 1970, Janet Johnson was best known to her peers as an introverted poetess. Raised in the mountains of western North Carolina by parents whose religion taught fear and shame, Janet had buried herself in books and her writing, occasionally coming up for air to spend time with her fearless friend Shirley. All of that was about to change. Her relationship with Anthony Blue Cloud, a young Cherokee artist whose parents had returned to the mountains after raising him in upstate New York, turned her world upside down as the two navigated prejudices, becoming young adults together, and the twists and turns of challenging the status quo and threatening small town hypocrisies. Enduring violence, alienation, and heartbreaks, together they master lessons of resilience and fortitude rarely learned on more familiar paths. From her entrance into Anthony's world, delving into the Cherokee language and culture, to her escape onto the streets of Mexico City's sprawling metropolis and return back home again, Janet's sense of identity is shaped and transformed in ways previously unimaginable to her.

Self-Improvement & Self-Love 52-week Guided Journal for Women

Hello ladies!! I’m so glad that you are here! This guided journal came about as a tool to support you through the modern challenges of life and the speed at which we all live. The world is changing so quickly and we all have to adjust and learn at a rapid pace.

This guided journal came about after many years of stress, fear, doubt, insecurity, lost friendships, and loneliness.

I was desperate to spring clean my mind and gain clarity. I was also desperate to put my mind and body in order and my answer was journaling.

The harder things got, the closer I came to having to make huge decisions and leave the T Junction of procrastination, the more I wrote.

Writing for me was therapy and the way forward. Here I am today significantly healthier, happier, and clearer about my future, able to look back and be grateful for my life. It has enabled me to digest my past and plan my future without depression or anxiety.

I hope and pray that this guided journal will also strengthen and support you as you move forward on your journey.

No matter the season of your life, may you find self-improvement and self-love through journaling. I hope that you record your thoughts, plans, dreams, and prayers and that you personally transform into all that you deserve to be.

You are worthy of all you wish for.
