Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen. are two great authors I cut my eye-teeth on.
One of my favourite Georgette Heter characters is Avon in These Old Shades and Mary in The Devil's Cub.
It's no surprise that Pride and Prejudice is my favourite Jane Austen book and that Colin Firth's Darcy epitomises Austen's hero.
To this day when I am stressed I'll search out these books. It's like reconnecting with old friends.
Who is your favourite author ahd which of their characters stand out for you and why?
