Myretta Robens has lived in Regency England since she was old enough to read Jane Austen. Unfortunately, as she never could get vouchers for Almacks, she was forced to make her way by going into trade. She spent more years than she cares to count working in the field of computer technology. It was rewarding in its own way but she never abandoned her first love. In 1997, she found an interesting way to insinuate the 19th century into the world of technology when she joined a friend in creating a Jane Austen web site. She still manages The Republic of Pemberley and invites you to come visit if your obsession runs to Jane Austen.
In 2005, Kensington Publishing published Once Upon a Sofa and Just Say Yes, which was a finalist for RWA’s RITA award and which won the Holt Medallion. Myretta has a short story inspired by Jane Austen in Ballantine Books’ anthology, Jane Austen Made Me Do It and a novella in Dressed to Kiss, an anthology with Madeline Hunter, Caroline Linden, and Megan Frampton.
