Author Shannon Winslow specializes in fiction for fans of Jane Austen. Her popular debut novel, "The Darcys of Pemberley," immediately established her place in the genre, being particularly praised for the author's authentic Austenesque style and faithfulness to the original characters. "For Myself Alone" (a stand-alone Austen-inspired story) followed. Then last year "Return to Longbourn" wrapped up Winslow's "Pride and Prejudice" saga, forming a trilogy when added to the original novel and her previous sequel. Now she has given us a "what if" story starring Jane Austen herself. In "The Persuasion of Miss Jane Austen," that famous author tells her own tale of lost love, second chances, and finding her happy ending. Her two sons grown, Ms. Winslow lives with her husband in the log home they built in the countryside south of Seattle, where she writes and paints in her studio facing Mt. Rainier.
