And in the Miss Chick Lit Pageant 2015, Caralyn wins…Miss Balancing Act. Her pageant talent was how well she can multi-task. See the first pageant post for full details if you missed it. It was so much fun!
I’ve always been an enormous fan of Jane Austen. Someone asked me recently if I had actually read “Pride and Prejudice the book”. Of course! I’ve read and loved all of Austen’s books and wish there were more. Misty Dawn Pulsipher writes her own twist on some of Austen’s classics, putting the characters in our modern world. She is here today for an interview while I review two of her books, Pride’s Prejudice and Persuaded.
Misty Dawn Pulsipher has been writing since she learned how, but it was during her angst-ridden college years that her love for writing began to flower. She spent countless hours revising poetry inspired by unrequited love, and has the binder to prove it. As a young mother Misty’s writing overlapped her affinity for all things Jane Austen, and she couldn’t rest until she’d created her own version of Mr. Darcy. Misty’s modern Austenesque novels, Pride’s Prejudice and Persuaded, were self-published in 2013 and 2014 respectively. Her third Austen rewrite, Mansfield, will be available by Christmas 2015.Misty suffers from a particularly potent case of OCD (obsessive creativity disorder). When she’s not writing or procrastinating an edit, she’s sewing, cross-stitching, or baking. She also boasts several collections, including a deck of cards from everywhere she’s been, enough bovine décor to supply Chick-fil-A for life, and thirteen versions of the board game Monopoly (at last count). Though Misty currently resides in Maryland with her husband and three minions, she will always call Utah home—and insist that eastern “mountains” are actually hills. You can check out her blog, Facebook author page, or contact her via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If she doesn’t respond, don’t take it personal . . . she’s probably writing her next book.
