LINDA O'BYRNE

Linda is the former fiction editor of Bella, Woman’s Weekly and Woman and Home, and has been writing fiction all her life, mostly for children and young adults. 

A regular on the WI circuit, giving lectures on writing fiction, Linda lives in Kent and is a keen member of her local drama group. Directing and acting take up a lot of her time - she has been given the onerous task of writing the Christmas pantomimes - but she still needs to cope with a large garden, two ponds and keeping in touch with friends scattered all over the world.  

Her love of romance, and the endearing characters of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, has resulted in what she hopes will be a series of books that take us forward to the next generation.

Many years have passed since the dramatic events of Pride and Prejudice. In The Cousins of Pemberley series we follow a new generation of heroines  - cousins with

lives as different and interesting as those enjoyed by their mothers.

 

Cassandra:

 

Cassandra Wickham, daughter of a flirt and a scoundrel, an innocent

abroad in a world where money can buy you anything, even a bride.

When danger threatens and the man she thought she could

rely on fails her,  there is only one place she can turn to

for help - Pemberley.   Surely the Darcys will protect her, no matter what happened in the past to divide the two families?
