Jane Austen was one of few female writers. She was born in England in 1775 and even though she wrote a lot during her life, her books didn't become popular until after she passed away. Her father owned a large library, and because of this, Austen and her siblings read a lot of books during their childhood. (We have to wonder what she wore on her feet as read she. Hmm?)
When she was just a teenager, Austen started to write books of her own. She filled notebooks with stories that commented on what was happening in England at the time. She also wrote romance stories and parodies that featured unique female characters. Stories like these weren’t being written by other authors of her time.
She became sick at age 41, in 1816, and she died the following year in England. She left behind a legacy of beloved, popular literature. Austen's most famous novels include Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Mansfield Park. We think she missed a golden opportunity to write about fabulous socks, so we’ll write it for her!
