Being a part of the worldwide Jane Austen fan club, I'm rewriting and modernizing all 6 of the Austen novels for teens.
Each of my books start in the rural city area of Farmington, New Mexico, USA.
Here is a list of The Jane Austen Diaries and their blurbs:
BOOK ONE: Pride & Popularity
Taylor always gets what he wants--until now.
Chloe Elizabeth Hart despises the conceited antics of the popular crowd, or more importantly, one very annoying self-possessed guy, Taylor Anderson, who seems determined to maker her the president of his fan club. As if! Every girl in the whole city of Farmington, NM, is in love with him, but he seems to be only interested in Chloe.
This modern high school adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is a battle of the wits as Chloe desperately tries to remain the only girl who can avoid the inevitable--falling for Taylor.
BOOK TWO: Northanger Alibi
Sometimes a guy is even better than you imagined . . .
The Russo family and Seattle, Washington, are no match for Claire Hart and her savvy knowledge of all things vampire-related. Thanks to her obsession with the Twilight series, if there is anyone who would know a vampire when she saw one, it’s Claire. And she’s positive totally hot Tony Russo is a vampire—she just has to prove it!
BOOK THREE: Persuaded
Will he take her back, or fling her aside like she deserves?
Three years ago Amanda made the biggest mistake of her life when she let her friends persuade her to reject the guy she loved. They were convinced he was a loser and wasn't good enough for her.
Now Gregory's back in Farmington . . . taller, stronger, hotter than ever, and worth millions. Those gorgeous girls who snubbed him before are now falling at his feet and he's enjoying every moment of it.
Can he see past the pain Amanda caused him and give her a second chance? Or will she forever regret losing the only guy who truly loved her?
BOOK FOUR: Emmalee
Sometimes love is blind.
Emmalee Bradford thinks she’s an expert at matchmaking, and she won’t rest until all her friends are as happy as she is. Especially Hannah, the girl she’s decided to make popular. Everyone loves Emmalee's advice--everyone, that is, except her annoying neighbor Chase Anderson, who has taken it upon himself to "fix" her.
This modern version of Jane Austen’s Emma is the hilarious journey of a girl who believes she knows all about love. But when it comes to recognizing the perfect guy for her, Emmalee is absolutely clueless.
BOOK FIVE: Mansfield Ranch
All Lilly Price had ever known was living in the shadow of her widely successful adoptive family. Until a twist of fate dealt Lilly the hand of the most popular guy in Bloomfield--instantly, everything flipped upside down. Now she must choose between the unavailable love of her life--or the guy who promises to be available forever.
BOOK SIX: Sensible & Sensational
(Dream state) I haven't even started this one yet...
