Remembering Jane Austen

Award-winning authoress Julie Klassen found her calling in the rich heritage of British literature. Classics read during childhood, such as Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden and Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, revealed the magic of storytelling, but the works of Jane Austen helped her develop a voice for creative expression. “I continue to consult Austen’s novels and letters as language references when I write,” Julie explains. She often includes subtle nods to the foremost name in Regency fiction—a gesture that many fans appreciate.
