Elizabeth Aston

I was born in Chile to an impeccably English father and a distinctly un-English Argentine mother. Educated by Benedictine nuns in Calcutta, Fabians in London, and Inklings at Oxford University, I'm now back in Oxford after spending several years in Italy.

My books include the bestselling Darcy series - six romantic comedies and a novella set in the world of Jane Austen, and a contemporary novel, Writing Jane Austen. These were inspired by my love of Jane Austen - her heroes, her heroines and her wicked sense of humour.

My Mountjoy novels depict the unholy, unquiet, and frequently unseemly goings-on of the Mountjoys of Mountjoy castle and their circle of friends and family, enhanced with a touch of magic and enchantment-I've always been fascinated by what lies just beyond our sight.
