A collection of Original Stories based on the 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. These are book-based 'interludes' the events of which fit into Austen's narrative at various points generally without changing the original plot. They feature your favorites from the book: Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy; but also offer character glimpses of Georgiana Darcy, Colonel Fitzwilliam, Charlotte Lucas (Collins)and many other familiar friends as well.

Stories range from light-hearted humour to romantic moments to all-out fantasy. There are proposals, misunderstandings, mistaken identities, parlour games and more! Any story not strictly book-faithful is identified as such: post-P&P, or pure fantasy.

Whether you have read Pride and Prejudice once, or have revisited it again and again - anyone who hates to turn that last page will find something to delight in these offerings! And, there is a bonus! A preview chapter of a novel, working title Principles of Pride, to be published late in 2013.

'Janeite' or neophyte - there is something here to enjoy for all!

About the Author

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.
