About the author

Frances Duncan

Frances Duncan lives in Wellington where she runs the Jane Austen Society of Aotearoa New Zealand. Jane Austen is so much a part of her life that you'll find a little bit of Austen in each of her stories. In primary school the teachers used to take her books off her and tell her to go play. It seemed a natural progression to go from reading too much to writing.<br>​​​​​​​<br>Frances has pieces included in the anthologies&nbsp;<em>Cocktails with Miss Austen&nbsp;</em>and&nbsp;<em>Huia Short Stories 14</em>​​​​​​​.
