Interestsofajaneaustengirl

Welcome Back Dear Readers,

This time I am visited by a returning authoress, who visited my very own blog, last year with her book, “The Assistant” namely the lovely Riana Everly. different lens cover 450x675[4886]

Welcome Back Riana!

Riana’s new book,“Through a Different Lens” is A tale of second glances and second chances

Elizabeth Bennet has disliked the aloof and arrogant Mr. Darcy since he insulted her at a village dance several months before. But an unexpected conversation with a startling turn of phrase suddenly causes her to reassess everything she thought she knew about the infuriating and humourless gentleman.

Elizabeth knows something of people who think differently. Her young cousin in London has always been different from his siblings and peers, and Lizzy sees something of this boy’s unusual traits in the stern gentleman from Derbyshire whose presence has plagued her for so long.

Stories from the Past

I’m so pleased to have another guest for the blog this month! I was interested in Through a Different Lens when I saw Riana posting on social media about writing Mr. Darcy with Autism.

10 Questions with Author Riana Everly

Linda Covella, Author

Today, author Riana Everly answers “10 Questions” about her writing. Riana is not only an author of historical fiction, but history informs other aspects of her life: she has a Master’s degree in Medieval Studies and is trained as a classical musician, specializing in Baroque and early Classical music.

Linda Covella: When and why did you decide to become a writer?

Riana Everly: I’ve always been a writer, I think. I published my first poem in the local newspaper when I was six years old (it was about a mushroom and it was three whole lines long), and my mother keeps finding stories I wrote over the years. Most I don’t remember at all, but they are in my handwriting, so I’ll assume they really are mine! As an adult, I was involved in writers’ groups and such, which both taught me a lot and left me in awe of…
