Victoria Connelly was brought up in Norfolk and studied English literature at Worcester University before becoming a teacher in North Yorkshire. After getting married in a medieval castle in the Yorkshire Dales, she moved to London where she lives with her artist husband and a mad springer spaniel. She has three novels published in Germany and the first, Flights of Angels, was made into a film. Victoria and her husband flew out to Berlin to see it being filmed and got to be extras in it. Her first novel in the UK, Molly's Millions, is a romantic comedy about a lottery winner who gives it all away.
Hmmm .... married in a medieval castle! Being an extra in a movie based on your own book! And a series set in the world of Austen addicts! That series is:

MR. DARCY FOREVER, coming in April 2012 from Sourcebooks at this link:
I enjoy Jane Austen's books and the BBC productions based on them. I do not consider myself a die hard Austen fan but I am a die hard Anglophile. For that reason, I enjoyed DREAMING OF MR. DARCY - it touched upon British culture that enchants me. Check out my review of DREAMING OF MR. DARCY at this link. I am giving away a print copy of DREAMING OF MR. DARCY to one randomly selected commenter. To enter the giveaway,
