Author has written 7 stories for Love, Historical, and General.

Hello y'all!

Yes, I'm from the South--but there's more to it than a drawl, y'all. And yes, my pen name is a variation of Jane Austen's pen name (ByaLady was already taken!).

Writing is how I free myself from the doldrums of this mundane existence. I've been committing my words to paper (figuratively speaking, of course) for nearly a year now, and I think I've come a long way. Of course, there's still a long way to go yet. Eventually, I aspire to be a published author. My husband hopes that I'll be famous someday, so that he can at last live the life he's accustomed to (Yeah, he's so cute like that). I don't necessarily see it happening, but it's nice to dream, right?

On principle, I don't read or write anything M-rated,

Reviews, of course, are appreciated!

Yes, I'm a poet,

Until recently, I didn't know it!

(Yeah, I know, that was cheesy. It's 1am and I couldn't sleep...)
