Author has written 3 stories for Romance.

"I think I may boast myself to be, with all possible vanity, the most unlearned and uninformed female who ever dared to be an authoress." - Jane Austen.

Jane Austen wrote of romance, love and marriage, something of which she encountered very little in her 41 years of life. However, no one has ever done it better or created characters which we have loved more than she has.

That is writing. A mark of a good author is someone who not only writes what they know but is also someone who writes about what they have no clue about and succeeds in convincing their readers of the exact opposite.
