Hi readers! I am very excited to welcome Carrie Kablean, author of a recently released Pride and Prejudice sequel titled, What Kitty Did Next (which we are so looking forward to reading, btw!), to Austenesque Reviews today!  

Carrie thoughtfully provided a little Q&A for me to share with you today! We hope you enjoy learning more about Carrie, her debut release, What Kitty Did Next, and her love of Jane Austen!

Thanks so much Meredith for hosting me on Austenesque Reviews and giving me the chance to talk about What Kitty Did Next – just in time for Christmas too! I mention that because there’s a scene about a Frost Fair on the frozen River Thames in the book, appropriate at this time of year! This is Kitty’s story – I thought she needed a life after Pride and Prejudice (and after Lydia!) – and I hope your readers grow to love her as much as I do!

What was your inspiration to write What Kitty Did Next? Continue reading »
