Jeanette A Watts

Jeanette Watts had been writing historic fiction when the inspiration for "Jane Austen Lied to Me" hit her on the drive home from the Jane Austen Festival. The idea was simply irresistible, and she put aside other writing projects in order to focus on writing a satire, thinking it would be a mental vacation. It turned out to take every bit as much research to write a modern story as it does to write a historical one.

She has written television commercials, marketing newspapers, stage melodramas, four screenplays, three novels and a textbook on waltzing. When she isn’t writing, she teaches social ballroom dances, refinishes various parts of her house and sews historical costumes for Renaissance festivals and Vintage dance events.
