MY WIP – A modern-day story based on “Persuasion” by Jane Austen

Palmyra Syria

Palmyra, Syria is Zenobia’s home known as Tadmor in ancient times.

I’ve been busy busy over at www. Zenobiabookseries.com. I’m excited to announce book two, “Zenobia – Challenging a Legend” will be available Nov 14th 2015. The Zenobia Book Series is a Historical Fiction Adventure Series based on Zenobia the Warrior Queen. Being so wrapped up in Zenobia Book Series I’ve completely neglected my own writing. Well, not any longer, I want to share with you my W.I.P. -Work In Progress.

A modern-day story based on “Persuasion” by Jane Austen


I love all things Jane Austen and have had the idea of a modern telling of “Persuasion” floating around for years. Most people haven’t even read “Persuasion.” I know it may not be as famous as “Pride and Prejudice,” “Sense and Sensibility,” or “Emma” but you’re missing out if you haven’t read it yet.

I’m a fan of all the Jane Austen books but my favorites are “Persuasion” and “Northanger Abbey.”

I like Anne and Catherine because of their imperfections. They aren’t leading ladies like Elizabeth, Elinor, and Emma. In “Persuasion” Anne is kind and sweet but unfortunately she lets her family walk all over her.

In Jane Austen’s novels who is your favorite character? And why?
