Tess Quinn is the nom de plume for an armchair time traveller. Introduced to British literature at age 13, she took to the likes of Jane Austen, Thomas Hardy, Charles Dickens and a host of others and never looked back.
Tess began to write Austen-based fiction in 2005. One short story made the finalist list in the 2010 Chawton House Short Story Contest; another ("A Good Vintage Whine") was selected for publication in an anthology, The Road to Pemberley, Ulysses Press, 2011. Her own collection of short stories, Pride Revisited, was first released on 28 Jan 2013, the 200th anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice. She is currently at work on two novels chronicling the loves and lives of the Darcy family of Derbyshire circa 1796-1810. These are planned for publication in 2013 and 2014.
