About the Author

Jack Caldwell is an author, amateur historian, professional economic developer, playwright, and like many Cajuns, a darn good cook. Born and raised in the Bayou County of Louisiana, Jack and his wife, Barbara, are Hurricane Katrina victims.

His nickname-The Cajun Cheesehead-came from his devotion to his two favorite NFL teams: the New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers. Always a history buff, Jack found and fell in love with Jane Austen in his twenties, struck by her innate understanding of the human condition.

When not writing or traveling, Jack attempts to play golf. A devout convert to Roman Catholicism, Jack is married with three grown sons.

Jack's blog postings-The Cajun Cheesehead Chronicles-appear regularly at Austen Authors.

I've always preferred Pride and Prejudice offshoots that respect the humorous aspect of the original. Jane Austen was not shy of displaying her sly wit, and the author's style captures that same honest enjoyment of the art of storytelling. While a little absurd in premise, the reader is guaranteed an amusing and satisfying tale if it is accepted. (And, really, given all the coincidences of the original, are we not predisposed to suspend our disbelief if the occurrence is at least rational?) Very well done.

Enjoyed the what if version of the classic story better than others I have read. Interesting to me thatbit was written by a man. Loved his point of view.

After reading two disappointing P&P what ifs, this book was a breath of fresh air. Loved the premise and the character development. Will not disappoint Jane Austen fan fiction fans.
