Saucy opinions like "The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has no pleasure in a good novel must be intolerably stupid." won Suzan Lauder, who thought, "I have to read more by this woman who writes with such snarky humour!" And another Jane Austen fanatic was captured in the clever dead author's net. As a lifetime member of JASNA, Austen figures prominently in Lauder's writing, and "Pride and Prejudice" has inspired all her published fiction. Her publisher is Meryton Press. Lauder's latest book, "Schemes of Felicity" is a light novella that led the Meryton Press under 40k word novella series "Skirmish and Scandal." Her novel "The Mist of Her Memory," a Regency romantic suspense and mystery novel, was rated a top book of 2019 by reviewers. Suzan's Regency romantic comedy "A Most Handsome Gentleman," nicknamed #HOTCollins, was among three reviewers' top-rated Jane Austen Fan Fiction books for 2017. Cover Wars Book of the Week and Amazon #1 bestseller "Letter from Ramsgate" was released in October 2016. It's a Regency romance with nail-biting drama. These books are teen-rated, aimed at anyone old enough to have enjoyed Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." They followed Suzan's unique adult-rated Austen-inspired Regency romance with a mystery twist, "Alias Thomas Bennet," which was published in 2013. A chapter from "Alias Thomas Bennet was a finalist in the Sexy Scribbles contest under Historical Fiction in 2019. Her short modern romance "Delivery Boy" was featured in Meryton Press's 2015 Holiday anthology, "Then Comes Winter." The anthology was included on "Best of 2015" lists on three influential book reviewers' blogs, and is suitable for readers of all ages. Lauder's fascination with the Regency period inspired a creative blog series, the "Thrift Shop Regency Costume Experiment." Her blog series, "Learning from my Mistakes," shares writing tips gathered from experiences on her latest novel as well as her work as a beta editor for a number of self-published books including a popular Austen Variations author and her experience as a prolific Austenesque reader, both of published and unpublished fan fiction. Lauder and Mr. Suze alternate homes in a Vancouver Island condominium overlooking the Salish sea and a small Spanish colonial house in Mexico purchased for the benefit of two rescue tabby cats, who supervise her projects.Read more Read less
