Amelia Fernside, who lives in Washington state, fell in love with the U.K. a few years ago during a long hike on Cumbria Way in England’s Lake District. That experience led to a love affair with the novels of Jane Austen and other British writers. That, in turn, led Amelia, a journalist by profession, to write her own regency romances. Amelia is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism. She is married and has four sons, three dogs and a crazy cat named Louie. Amelia loves writing Regency romances and hopes to continue writing them forever.
