Hi, my name is Karen Wasylowski. I am a retired CPA, living in Florida with my husband, Richie, and our dogs, Darcy and Alfred.
The idea for Darcy and Fitzwilliam came to me while watching the 1995 movie of Pride and Prejudice. I can even tell you the moment - it was during the dinner table scene at Aunt Catherine's lovely Rosings Park. She is grilling Elizabeth about her family and suddenly Darcy is darting his gaze from his aunt to Elizabeth, appearing ready to slink under the table. Then he looks across at his cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam, who gifts him with a smirk and a barely suppressed laugh. I remember thinking to myself, "How typical of brothers - each enjoying the discomfort of the other," and I began to laugh. Sons and Daughters is a sequel to Darcy and Fitzwilliam, and the direct result of having those two gentlemen now firmly entrenched in my head, voices demanding that I write about their children.
Released on St. Valentine's Day was Book III to Darcy and Fitzwilliam, entitled WIVES AND LOVERS. My dear friends, Darcy and Fitzwilliam, are growing older now, but still are handsome, wise and funny. Their grown children are giving them headaches, however - involved with romance, children and the insanity of love.
