Abigail reynolds

Abigail Reynolds isn't good at following straight lines. Originally from upstate New York, she studied Russian and theater at Bryn Mawr College and marine biology at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole. After a stint in performing arts administration, she decided to attend medical school, and took up writing as a hobby during her years as a physician in private practice. She is one of the co-founders of the popular Austen Variations group blog. 

A life-long lover of Jane Austen's novels, Abigail began writing variations on Pride & Prejudice in 2001, then expanded her repertoire to include a series of novels set on her beloved Cape Cod. Her most recent releases are the national bestseller Mr. Darcy's Noble Connections, Mr. Darcy's Refuge, A Pemberley Medley and Morning Light. She is currently working on a new Pemberley Variation and the next novel in her Cape Cod series. A lifetime member of JASNA, she lives on Cape Cod with her husband, her son and a menagerie of animals. Her hobbies do not include sleeping or cleaning her house.

As the first published author of Jane Austen-inspired variations, she has written 13 books with total sales well over 200,000. Her first 6 books were published by Sourcebooks, with 3 currently being translated into French by traditional French publishers.
