What It’s About: “An obsessed Jane Austen fan lives out her fantasy at an ‘Austen’ themed resort. There she navigates the delicate line between fantasy and reality and discovers what she really wants.”
What’s It REALLY About: “It’s a story about wish fulfillment — about that thing you’ve always wanted and when you get it, it’s not what you expected. But really truly it’s just a very fun rom com.”
My Biggest Challenge: “It has been a joy throughout but the biggest challenge for me was balancing my family and career. My poor daughter still hasn’t forgiven me.”
Inspirations: “Wizard of Oz,” “Dirty Dancing,” “West World,” all reproductions of Jane Austen’s books…
What I’m Up To: “I have a brand new baby so I will write this year.”
