Author Of The Week: Jane Austen

“There is not charm ewual to the tenderness of the heart.”- Jane Austen

Jane Austen, author of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and ‘Sense and Sensibility’. A true gem from a  family of 8 children. Intelligent and successful, Austen wrote a collection of truly  novels.

Born in 1775 Austen was born into a privileged family. During her childhood she was tutored at home by her father. She produced many comical stories during this period of her life; her first mellow novel, Lady Susan (it was not published until years after her death).

From there Austen went onto produce her most famous novels. One of which I am reading currently is Northanger Abbey , a book which I strongly recommend.

In the Uk Austen is also to be featured on the new 10 pound note.
