Jane Austen

Ever fascinated by the world of stories, Jane began to write in bound notebooks. In the 1790s, during her adolescence, she started to craft her own novels and wrote 'Love and Freindship'.

Jane's parents were well-respected community members. Her father served as the Oxford-educated rector for a nearby Anglican parish. The family was close and the children grew up in an environment that stressed learning and creative thinking. When Jane was young, she and her siblings were encouraged to read from their father's extensive library. The children also authored and put on plays and charades.

Jane Austen was born on December 16, 1775, in Steventon, Hampshire, England

Her novels, including 'Pride and Prejudice' and 'Sense and Sensibility', are considered literary classics, bridging the gap between romance and realism.

In her 30s, Jane started to anonymously publish her works. In the period spanning 1811-16, she pseudonymously published 'Sense and Sensibility','Pride and Prejudice'

Austen died in Winchester on 18 July 1817, at the age of 41.
