For Letter A, I have chosen Jane Austen.
Jane Austen Biography
Jane Austen was one of eight children of an English clergyman, and given her literary accomplishments, she lived a remarkably quiet and domestic life in the rural south of England. She never married and was only 41 when she died. Women authors were not widely accepted at the time, so her major novels were published anonymously, and Jane Austen was not associated with them until after her death.
Jane Austen’s novels were witty, warm, and ironic portraits of the privileged classes of 18th- and 19th-century England. Her best-known works are Sense and Sensibility(1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), and Emma (1815).

My first introduction to Jane Austen was Sense and sensibility. I found this book in my father’s library. It belonged to my late mother so it had more than literary value for me. I greatly admired Austen’s grasp of human emotions and how they influenced the course of their lives. For a woman who lived a sheltered life, she had a remarkable understanding of human nature. ￼
