About the Event

Diana Birchall worked for many years as a story analyst for Warner Bros Studios, evaluating novels. Reading popular manuscripts went side by side with a lifetime of Jane Austen scholarship, and resulted in her writing Austenesque fiction both as homage and close study of Jane Austen’s style. She is the author of Mrs. Darcy’s Dilemma, In Defense of Mrs. Elton, Mrs. Elton in America, The Bride of Northanger, and hundreds of short stories. She and Syrie James have co-written several Austenesque comedy plays, which have been performed in many cities. Diana's own "You Are Passionate, Jane," a dialogue between Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte in Heaven, has been performed for many appreciative JASNA audiences as well as at Chawton House Library in England. Find out more about Diana on her Facebook page: www.facebook.com/diana.birchall.

Syrie has spoken at numerous JASNA events and at Chawton House Library in England. Her books have been translated into 21 languages and won many awards including the Audiobook Audie.
